Tennessee child custody: There is no quick fix for families

As family law attorneys, here is one of the most common and most distressing questions we must often answer. Is there an ideal child custody arrangement that we can use for our family? It is a common question because parents want the best for their children. It is a distressing question because the answer is no, there is not a single custody arrangement that works for all families.

Every family, every marriage, every divorce and every child are all different and unique, which means that every child custody solution is also unique. What works for one family may not work for any other family in Tennessee. This is why taking a personal approach to creating child custody plans usually works out well.

Remember that a judge will have the final say on your child custody arrangements to ensure that your children's needs are met. For divorcing parents who can cooperate, it may not be difficult to convince a court that your custody and visitation plan meet these needs. Your lawyer can assist by strengthening your case and helping you present your plan to the court.

In other, less amicable divorces, tackling child custody with success is typically more difficult, especially without legal assistance. This is especially so if you and your spouse have difficulty agreeing on issues that affect the children. In these situations, you will benefit from having a lawyer to act in your interests and on your behalf in the court and in communications with your co-parent.
