Child Custody

Taking Care of Your Children During the Divorce

From the time children are born, parents worry about doing everything they can to raise them well. Many parents split responsibilities regarding taking care of the kids, making meals, supporting the family financially and chauffeuring the kids to extracurricular activities. During divorce, these responsibilities will likely be rearranged, and it can be tough for parents to believe their kids will be okay when they are not around.

If that is the situation you are facing, it is important to work with an experienced Sevierville child custody attorney who can address your concerns and help you create a parenting plan that will protect your children's best interests. White & White, Attorneys at Law, has been doing just that for families in Sevier County, Knox County, Blount County and surrounding counties.

Sevier County Child Custody Evaluation Lawyer

In Tennessee, child custody is based on a number of factors. The most important consideration is doing what is in the child's best interest. The court looks at a variety of factors, including:

  • Relationship each parent has with the child
  • Which parent has been the primary caretaker
  • Living situations of each parent
  • Availability of each parent to spend time with child

When attorneys Brandon and Felisha work with parents to create custody and visitation plans, they take the time to understand the needs and concerns of the parents, and work closely with them to devise a plan that everyone could be satisfied with.

If both parents cannot agree on a parenting plan, the attorneys can litigate the case in an effort to receive the best possible outcome.

Other Factors Influencing Child Custody

In some situations, one parent has concerns regarding the other parent's ability or his or her questionable activities. If a parent uses drugs or alcohol, that could negatively impact how much time he or she will be allowed to spend with the child.

Regardless of the concerns you have about creating a custody plan, it is important to know there is someone who can help.
