Significant amendment to Tennessee's statutes concerning child custody and visitation

In April of 2016, the Tennessee General Assembly made a significant amendment to Tennessee's statutes concerning significant amendment to Tennessee's statutes concerning child custody and visitation, specifically in regard to parental relocation. Tennessee Code Annotated Section 36-6-108 is the controlling statute concerning when a parent may "relocate," that is move out of state, or at least 50 miles away from the other parent. Prior to this new amendment, TCA 36-6-108(a) merely listed requirements for when "a parent who is spending intervals of time...." decides to relocate. After the amendment, however, additional language has been added that now requires custody or co-parenting to be "established by the entry of a permanent parenting plan or final order..." in order for the statute to be applicable.

Warm Wishes and Ways to Give Back

In the spirit of the holiday season, there are so many ways to give back and to make the holidays merry and bright for the less fortunate. We all see the Salvation Army volunteers outside of our favorite stores collecting change, but there are many more programs out there that support families in the local community.
