Tennessee Marriage & Family Law

The courts in Tennessee see a wide variety of cases, from spousal support, to diving up marital property appropriately, and child custody, and much more. In fact, there are even laws that concern marriages, even before the marriage has taken place.

For example, these types of marriages are not permitted under the law:

  • Marriage between between family members, i.e. parent and child, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents etc.
  • Entering into a marriage with a person who is already in a legally valid marriage
  • Marriage to a minor (under the age of 16)
  • Marriage to an individual who is unable to provide consent, such as intoxication or lack of mental capacity

To receive a marriage license, you would only need to provide your identification, date of birth, as well as proof of divorce to show that your previous marriage has been dissolved. After you receive your license, it is valid for 30 days, no waiting period necessary, and is valid throughout all counties in the state.

Do I Need a Divorce Attorney?

The need for a divorce lawyer depends so much on your particular circumstances. For simple cases, you may be able to represent yourself; however, the advantage of having a divorce lawyer is knowing you have an ally alongside you, who is also experienced and knowledgeable of the ins and outs of the law. This is particularly true when you are dealing with highly emotional matters such as child custody. Your attorney can negotiate on your behalf so that you can focus on more important matters.

Online Divorce vs. Hiring a Lawyer

The first major problem with online divorce services is that they are only suitable for couples who agree on every aspect of their divorce, from asset and debt division to parenting time. This may work for couples who pursue an uncontested divorce or have not been married for long, but most couples require a divorce attorney's assistance to work out the details of their divorce.

Even couples who think they agree on the terms of their divorce may find themselves at odds over issues such as child custody or spousal support. If you jump into a divorce as your own advocate, then you run the risk of losing on important issues or being unable to proceed in the event that you and your spouse reach a stalemate.

Online divorce may also cost you more in the long run. For example, if you face a financial disadvantage after your divorce, then you will need a divorce attorney to help you get an alimony order from the court because, if you forgo spousal support, you may suffer financial hardship after your divorce. This ultimately cost you far more than you "saved" by opting for a DIY divorce.
