Child Support

Tennessee utilizes a statutory set of guidelines and a state-mandated calculator to determine child support obligations. It is important to make sure that all relevant information be considered and included in the calculation, including:

  • Proper income amounts
  • Proper deductions for medical and dental insurance
  • Proper deductions for work-related childcare
  • Any extenuating circumstances that might be grounds for a deviation from the mandated guidelines, such as private school expenses, or extraordinary medical bills

Child Custody and Visitation Rights

Parents are encouraged to work out agreements for child custody and visitation outside of the court. However, if the parents cannot agree, mediation will be required. Any issue upon which agreement cannot be reached at mediation will have to be determined at trial.
