Alimony and the state of Tennessee

In most Tennessee cases, divorce is a simple and straightforward process. In other instances, the details of alimony can thwart the otherwise smooth divorce legal procedures, especially those cases in which individuals fail to pay alimony fees. There are many factors that determine each alimony case, and state laws are continually changing to better fit the needs of citizens. 

The stakes of high asset divorce

The plethora of issues that can stem from a divorce often consist of dividing assets. Analyzing and distributing finances can be a crucial period, especially for high-net-worth individuals. The average divorce in Tennessee costs roughly $12,000, and that estimate excludes the necessary factoring of attorney fees and assets. In addition, a divorce of high net worth often costs more than the state average, and divorces filed for adultery or cruelty also have increased cost.

3 Myths About Alimony

The divorce process is fraught with misunderstandings, over everything from the methods of resolving disputes to determining how property will be divided. One of the biggest sources of misunderstandings is alimony, also known as spousal support or maintenance.

What is a parenting plan?

Any divorcing couple with children in Tennessee will eventually have to deal with the prospect of splitting up parental duties. The Thomas Family Law Firm, PLC, works to help you understand what a parenting plan is, what it can do for you and your children, and why it's so important.

Will the court recognize your 'modern' family?

When you think of the old African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child,” it is easy to forget more than two people can be parental figures in a child’s life. Indeed, authority figures, whether it is a teacher, coach or counselor can add insight and wisdom to a child’s life, but more courts are recognizing additional people that can have legal and/or physical custody of a child.



Mr. Thomas kept me well informed during my lengthy divorce. He always returned my calls within 24 hours, usually sooner. He gave me very good advice and listened to all of my concerns. He always told me what I needed to hear, not necessarily what I wanted to hear. I found him to be a nice, honest and hard-working lawyer.

Justin and his staff are a great team! Justin represented me after the divorce was finalized and fixed what the original attorney told me was set in stone! Everything we asked for we received, from both the court and the staff. It has been almost two years and I can still contact them for anything I need and they are ALWAYS more than willing to help! I recommend Justin and his staff as much as possible. There is no way I would ever use anyone else!

Justin Thomas represented me in a divorce and I was very pleased with his work ethic and representation. He was extremely professional and cared about what was in the best interest of my son and me. He kept the cost of the divorce to a minimum, which was great! I believe he provided excellent representation and honestly cared about me, the outcome of my divorce, and most importantly, my time with my son. I have recommended Mr. Thomas to several friends and will continue to do so.
