Responding to domestic violence situations

Criminal charges, allegations and accusations associated with domestic violence are unquestionably serious. Family violence concerns should not be taken lightly and neither should domestic assault charges, allegations and accusations of domestic violence. Penalties for domestic violence can be significant and are generally the same as those for other assault charges but also include the possibility that the accused individual can lose their right to own or possess a firearm.

Important ruling in Tennessee for same-sex parents

It is important for same-sex couples in Tennessee and elsewhere to understand their rights and the resources the family law process provides to them. A judge in Tennessee recently ruled that same-sex couples have the same rights as heterosexual couples to children born through artificial insemination. Four lesbian couples in Tennessee brought the lawsuit. Each of the four couples is expecting a child conceived using a sperm donor; the first child is expected in September. A recent United States Supreme Court lawsuit also ruled in favor of same-sex parental rights.
