EXPERIENCED – SMART – RESULTS DRIVEN
Divorce is unlike any other litigation you may deal with in your lifetime. It is a highly emotional and adversarial process. How do you put a value on quality of time with your children? How do you move on without being financially crippled? Uncontested divorces are a more logical and less emotional process. After all, if your divorce is uncontested, you and your spouse are at least on good enough terms to have worked out all of the terms of the settlement. What happens when the divorce is contested though? That’s why we are here.
Don’t try to to face divorce alone. A divorce is one of the most stressful and emotionally draining times in a persons life. It is not unusual for clients to have issues with their friends, family, substances, or work when dealing with a divorce. The stress and pressure of litigation is even greater if the action is contested or disputed. It is important that you understand your options, and that your divorce lawyer understands your goals, to ensure that you and your family end up in the best position possible.

Divorce Law in Nashville
It is important that your divorce attorney understands the specific tendencies and procedures of the county in which your divorce is filed. Unlike many counties in Tennessee where divorces can be heard in Circuit or Chancery Court (see Rutherford, Sumner) Nashville divorces are filed in Davidson County Circuit Court only. 99% of the divorces are assigned to the Third and Fourth Circuits. It is important that your divorce lawyer be familiar with both Judge Robinson in Third Circuit and Judge Smith in Fourth Circuit. Although both judges try to rule in a similar way to keep continuity in the county, each does some things differently. This is one of the many reasons divorce is so complex. To put it in perspective, I have seen other attorneys attempt to handle their own divorces and fail miserably. Even attorneys need someone experienced in divorce to navigate the system and prevent them from making horrible and permanent errors in their settlements.
It is important that you chose a Nashville divorce lawyer that is experienced in divorce in both the Third and Fourth circuits. The best Nashville divorce lawyers not only understand the law, but they also understand the psychology of the court room, the emotions involved with the parties, and the stress and sadness associated with the anxiety and disruption of a divorce. An experience divorce attorney understands these things, and helps guide you through the proceed while ensuring logically that your case is best set up for a possible trial in front of either of the Davidson County Divorce Circuits. A good divorce lawyer will advise you to act in the best way to preserve your rights, and to arrange so you are in the best position possible for custody, property division, child support, alimony, or whatever other issues have arisen in your divorce.
