How to avoid visitation conflicts on special occasions

It's a well-known fact that many families experience high levels of stress when special events or holidays take place. If you're one of many Tennessee parents who are currently preparing for divorce, you'll want to do whatever you can ahead of time to avoid potential conflict and stress down the line when it comes to your special occasion custody and visitation plan. Navigating the divorce process is seldom easy, and there's no way to predict the future.

Key factors of successful co-parenting after divorce

If you're a parent who recently obtained or is planning to file for a divorce in Tennessee, one of your main priorities is likely helping your children cope with the situation. Divorce impacts children's lives; there is no doubt. However, if you and your former spouse are willing to compromise and cooperate as needed, you can both help your children navigate the process in as healthy and least stressful manner as possible.

Questions to ask yourself if you're considering divorce

So lately, you've found your mind frequently drifting to the topic of divorce. Perhaps you're not even sure yet whether you want a divorce, but for one reason or another, the thought keeps popping into your head. Of course, nobody jumps headfirst into divorce without giving the matter a good deal of thought, but -- as an advisor points out -- while many people put a lot of effort into asking all the right questions before deciding to get married, few approach divorce with the same methodical line of thinking.

Tennessee requires waiting period for no fault divorce

Whether your marriage has been barely hanging on for months (or longer) or a cataclysmic event brought it to an abrupt end, navigating the process of divorce can be quite daunting. Perhaps you and your spouse are on good enough speaking terms that you both agree you want to sever your ties as swiftly and painlessly as possible. That's all well and good except for the fact that Tennessee law requires an extended waiting period before you can finalize a no fault divorce if you do not have an agreement with your spouse.

Juggling your job and your divorce

Whether you're merely considering divorce or are already in the midst of one, you're likely feeling stressed. While often a transition to a brighter future, divorce can also be a taxing time. Hopefully, most people will be patient with you, but someone who may be less than understanding is your employer. Even if you have the most sympathetic boss in the world, you'll likely still want to make an effort to keep your job separate from your divorce, to try to remain as productive an employee as possible.

Drafting a parenting plan that really works

One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce for Tennessee families is determining how custody and visitation should work. During an emotionally challenging time, it can be complicated to make reasonable decisions that benefit the children and preserve relationships between two people who will have to co-parent. It could be vital for your family to carefully consider how to make your parenting plan workable and sustainable for the future.

Finding hidden assets during your divorce

When a marriage ends, it is normal for both parties to have serious concerns regarding their individual financial futures. In some cases, this leads one of the parties to attempt to hide assets in order to keep the other from receiving his or her fair share of marital property. This is a frustrating situation, possibly lengthening and complicating the divorce process.
