Guiding Families Through Procedural Complexities
Even if there is not an actual dispute requiring litigation, it is important to remember the value that an attorney can provide in family law matters. In the example of adoption, there is too much at stake to make a legal misstep. For example, Tennessee law requires prospective parents to complete a home study program. With an attorney on your side, you can be confident that your legal rights will be prioritized in any interactions with the child’s social worker or other state agency officials.
Contentious family law issues may also arise outside of divorce. In the example of paternity, Tennessee child support laws apply. If the biological father desires a relationship with the child, he will also have a legal right to custody and parenting time. If the parents were unmarried but living together, an attorney can also assist with their division of property.
