If you are facing a divorce you will have to face the reality of alimony

Getting a divorce is hard to do, but it becomes more difficult when one side cannot support themselves following the separation. In these situations, alimony becomes another potential issue in a divorce proceeding. Spouses ordered to pay alimony are often, and understandably, resentful of the court-ordered obligation; after all, a significant portion of their earnings are going to their ex-spouse. Below, we examine alimony and the general types most courts acknowledge.

Collaborative Family Law

On April 1, 2019, the Tennessee Supreme Court amended their rules to add Rule 53, a new rule addressing Collaborative Family Law. This decision has been a long time coming and thanks should be given to the many professionals that have worked hard for this outcome. It is just another tool for those families having to go through a divorce. This "new" tool provides a team-based approach for divorce.

Prenup, postnup or nothing at all?

Almost everyone is familiar with the term "prenuptial agreement," which gives a couple control over their future wealth once they marry. You are probably used to hearing it mentioned in relation to entertainers and well-known sports figures who have assets worth millions of dollars, but prenups, as they are often called, have become popular with couples in many different income brackets-and so have postnups.
