Even Uncontested Divorce Proceedings Contain Inherent Risks

Tennessee courts are aware that so-called “do-it-yourself divorces” do not properly protect against or prevent the risks inherent to divorce proceedings. People wishing to process an uncontested divorce are also not aware that these proceedings still contain risk. In reality, it is always important to consult with an experienced divorce lawyer before filing for divorce in any situation. Divorce is a complex matter and holds many risks that should be addressed through proper planning and legal guidance.

Child custody issues can arise when one parent’s parenting techniques become unacceptable or there is a disagreement about a child’s education. Vacations, summer camps, after-school activities and holidays can cause disputes over visitation and parenting plans. Child support, alimony, property division and debt division can all create unforeseen tax liabilities and other responsibilities that might become difficult to maintain without proper planning.

These issues are just a few examples of the many complexities of divorce. Disagreement on just one issue can cause serious contentions, and it is crucial to protect yourself and your children during the process of divorce.

Mediation in divorce is a very real possibility, and several of our attorneys are Tennessee Supreme Court-approved mediators.
