The difference between physical and legal custody

Some people in Tennessee might think of which parent a child will be living with when they think about custody, but there are actually two different kinds. Physical custody refers to where a child lives, but legal custody involves making decisions about major aspects of a child's life. This includes what health care the child receives, where he or she goes to school, the religious tradition the child is brought up in and more.

Financial considerations concerning the family home in divorce

At some point over the course of your marriage, you and your spouse may have decided to pursue your goals of owning a home. Should the two of you decide to take separate paths in life, you might be wondering about each of your options and how best to handle the family home during divorce.

When divorced parents want to move away

Parents in Tennessee who separate or divorce have a long future ahead of co-parenting, sharing child custody and visitation. Since children can benefit so greatly from a relationship with both parents absent a situation of abuse or neglect, parents must keep certain issues in mind if they think about moving for a job or another opportunity. If one of the individuals wants to move more than 50 miles from the other person's home or outside the state, he or she must contact the other parent under the guidelines that were established by the state.
