A More Progressive Approach to Legal Representation

Custody Archives

Noncustodial parents have many important rights

In the event that a Tennessee court determines that a child should be in the sole physical custody of one of their parents, the noncustodial parent may feel as though they have lost all possible opportunity to be involved in their child's life. However, this is not necessarily the case. Despite the fact that a child may not live in the same physical space as their noncustodial parent does not mean that that parent may be cut out of the child's life.

Allegations of abuse and their impact on child custody decisions

The goal of a Tennessee court that must establish a custodial plan for a family is to meet the needs of the child who will be affected by the court's decision. This can mean that the court must make many considerations to determine the best interests of the child. One important consideration that can be weighed in its evaluation is the presence of allegations or evidence of abuse in the parent-child relationship.

Custody options for Tennessee families

It can be hard on a child to watch their parents go through a divorce or separation. In the end the child will have to find a new level of normalcy for their life and will have to adjust to spending their time with their parents in separate homes. How the parents will share their time and parenting decisions with their child will form the basis of the custody arrangement they create or receive from the court.

Noncustodial parental rights in Tennessee

After a separation or divorce a child's life is thrown into chaos. At the very least they will have to move in with just one of their parents at a time and in some cases they may not have much contact with their noncustodial parent. When a court grants physical custody solely or primarily to one parent, it can be difficult for the noncustodial parent and their child to retain a strong relationship.
