Child Support

Child support is set based upon the Tennessee child support guidelines. Both parents' gross monthly incomes, along with the amount of time they spend with the child are two of the factors that will be used in the computation of the child support obligation. Contact King & King Attorneys At Law and let us assist you with the calculation.

Parenting Plans

A parenting plan is required by Tennessee law in a divorce action with children. In an initial case, the court will conduct a comparative fitness analysis to make a determination as to which parent should be the primary residential parent. King & King Attorneys At Law will be there to fight for you and your children for the best resolution.

Adoption

The adoption process can be an exciting, but challenging time. King & King Attorneys At Law is experienced in handling various types of adoptions from step-parent and relative adoptions to agency adoptions and international adoptions. From the termination phase to the final adoption proceeding, our Tennessee adoption attorneys will guide you each step of the way.

Collaborative Divorce

A collaborative divorce offers an out-of-court solution for families to transition from marriage to divorce. It is a voluntary process that focuses on the goals of both parties and their families. Some key differences between a collaborative divorce and a traditional litigation divorce are:

  • The collaborative process is completely voluntary.

  • The parties agree to stay out of court.

  • Each party must be represented by a lawyer whose representation terminates upon the undertaking of any contested court proceeding.

  • It is a team-based approach where mental health and financial professionals collaborate with the parties and their respective attorneys. The engagement of these professionals also terminates upon the undertaking of any contested court proceeding.

  • The parties maintain open communication and share information with each other and the team to achieve mutually acceptable goals.

  • This team-based approach creates shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all.

  • The entire process is structured to minimize conflict between the parties.
