Tennessee Child Support Guidelines

Tennessee child support guidelines try to minimize the economic impact on children whose parents have separated. Many factors such as medical care, child care and education costs will be considered for both parties. However, determining a parent’s financial responsibility to their child is often more complex than filling out paperwork and applying guidelines. Let our attorneys can guide you through the process to determine your financial commitment.

Reaching A Child Custody Agreement That Works

The more you strive to keep things amicable between you and your former partner, the better it will be for your child. Together, we will work hard to keep your case out of the courtroom if possible and help you determine orders surrounding:
