Taking steps to get ready for your upcoming divorce

Maybe you've made the choice to divorce, or perhaps you are contemplating moving forward with that option in the near future. Once you know this is probably the course of action for you, there are steps you can take to effectively prepare yourself for what lies ahead. Taking the time to get ready for divorce can ultimately save you time and money.

Understanding the criminal charge of drug possession

Tennessee residents facing drug crimes should seek the help of criminal defense attorneys to support them as they analyze and defend their cases. Legal professionals who work in criminal defense can provide their clients with case-specific help to see them through their trials and prepare defenses that may help them protect their rights. This post provides general information on the topic of drug possession and is not legal advice.

Co-parenting challenges affect popular reality tv couple

Co-parenting in the wake of a separation or divorce can be incredibly challenging for Tennessee parents. However, when individuals are able to put the needs of their children first, they can often find common ground with their exes to provide their kids with the love and support they need. Not all former couples find this easy, however, and a former couple from a popular reality television program is currently struggling to find balance in their own co-parenting lives.

Defining assault during a domestic violence claim

As previously discussed on this blog, domestic violence accusations can stem from different types of harm that occur between individuals in different domestic relationships. Commonly, individuals involved in domestic violence situations live in the same household or are involved in a romantic relationship. The forms of harm that can occur between them may involve sexual, emotional, or physical abuse.

What is a drug diversion program?

Criminal charges are serious, and when Tennessee residents are convicted, they may have to live with their alleged crimes for the rest of their lives. When it comes to finding a job, securing a loan, or even maintaining relationships, individuals can struggle when they must carry the weight of their prior criminal conduct. For some, diversions may be possible to lift such burdens and clear up their futures.

Periodic custody evaluations can be beneficial

Getting to the end of a divorce with a workable child custody order or agreement in place can be a great relief to a Tennessee parent. Often, individuals worry about how divorce and separation will impact their kids and finding common ground on matters related to where children will live and how they will be raised can alleviate stress and worry. Unfortunately, however, not all families are able to maintain their custody and parenting schedules. Disruptions and changes in parents and kids' lives can require them to modify their operating orders and agreements.

Are you struggling to cope with your divorce?

When an event seemingly turns your life upside down, you may easily feel overwhelmed. It may reach a point where making even a simple decision could cause you a great deal of stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, going through a divorce can cause these feelings for many Tennessee residents.
