What constitutes domestic assault in Tennessee?

It is normal for family members or romantic partners in Tennessee to argue occasionally, even if they love each other. When disagreements arise, oftentimes people are able to talk it out without further incident. However, sometimes an argument becomes so heated that one side or the other starts making accusations of domestic violence. This is a very serious situation.

Bankruptcy can open the door to a brighter financial future

Financial certainty can turn into financial disaster in a split-second. A person in Tennessee could be unexpectedly laid off due to corporate downsizing, leading to a loss of income and an inability to pay their bills. Or, a person could be the victim of a car accident or a sudden, severe illness, that leaves them with a mountain of medical debt that they cannot overcome. People in these situations may try to rely on credit cards to make ends meet, but that will only exasperate their financial difficulties when their balances accumulate and they have no way to pay them off.

Same-sex couples should consider pre-nups or post-nups

When same-sex marriage became legal in the United States, many same-sex couples rushed to the altar to finally enjoy a fundamental right they had been denied. Unfortunately, some of these marriages were not well-thought out, and some couples later faced a messy divorce. However, what we can learn from the situation is that by executing a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement, same-sex couples in Tennessee can protect their financial interests should their marriage not last.
