In recent years, the word custody has been substituted in Tennessee Courts in recent years with Primary Residential Parent. The meaning is still the same in that in most situations one parent ultimately maintains a more dominant parenting relationship with the children while the other parent visits regularly.

Joint Custody Lawyer | Columbia, Maury County, TN

The trend in the courts and the law has been to look towards joint parenting decision-making and a more equal division of parenting time. That is certainly not to say that the judges will in all cases grant a 50-50 division of time and allow joint decision-making, only that the judges are instructed to consider this as an option before determining otherwise. In reality these situations are very difficult to maintain and one would be wise to seriously consider the likelihood of this arrangement being manageable before asking for or agreeing to such an arrangement. However, in cases where these arrangements work well, the children seem to benefit greatly from their parents cooperation and ultimately suffer far less than other children who fall victim to divorce. Joint Custody or Fifty Fifty (50-50) parenting time may or may not be best for your family.

Whatever agreement is reached regarding custody and visitation; it is likely to be far more palatable to the parents and children than one manufactured by the court at the conclusion of a trial. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of each of the attorneys, the judge is not likely to have as clear a picture of your personal circumstances as you may have hoped. Judges will look to the best interest of your children and do their best to fashion a Permanent Parenting Plan, which will serve to adequately address the children's needs. Ultimately; however, the judge will not likely take into account many of the infinite considerations that may be unique to your family's situation. Because of this, parties are often required to attend Mediation. Mediation is non-binding arbitration; during which, parties attempt to amicably resolve the issues between them. This process works quite well, especially in matters of family law. The mediator, certified as set out in Rule 31 of the Tennessee Supreme Court Rules, is an experienced divorce and family law practitioner familiar with the habits and tendencies of our local judges. The mediator will listen to each party's point of view; through conversations with the parties and their respective counsels, review financial data supplied prior to the data mediation and will work to aid the parties in fashioning an agreement which works to best serve the parties and their children. Mediation is not limited to custody: all matters pending between the parties may be addressed. Let an experienced child custody attorney help you help your family find it's best plan for your children.
