A Memphis Attorney Guiding Clients Through Divorce

Divorce can be painful, and ideally, the legal process should not add to that pain. At the Reno Law Firm, we work hard to pursue divorce resolutions that meet our clients' needs while considering the impact of divorce on families and children.

If you are considering divorce or your spouse has filed for divorce, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can help you. Based in Memphis, we serve clients in Shelby County and throughout the region.

Skillfully Addressing the Central Divorce Issues

The divorce process is a process of resolving several different issues so that the legal marriage relationship can be ended. Among the most prominent issues are the following:

  • Child custody and visitation: The division of custody time and decision-making duties in a parenting plan is a major part of any divorce involving children. These decisions must focus on the child's best interests.
  • Child support: The calculation of child support is based on each parent's income as well as certain specific financial needs of the child. It is important to base this calculation on accurate numbers.
  • Property division and alimony: The division of assets and assignment of alimony responsibilities can be settled between the spouses or imposed by a judge. Settlement is usually a better outcome for everyone.

In Tennessee, there is no procedure for legal separation for people who want to live apart without getting divorced. However, there may be steps that you can take to protect yourself and your children during a separation.

Choosing the Right Approach for Your Case

There are several ways to resolve a divorce case. If you and your spouse can agree on a settlement, we can help you complete the process. In these situations, we only represent one spouse, and the other should consult another lawyer or agree to remain unrepresented.

If you and your spouse have some disagreements about the divorce, we can arrange for mediation before the case is filed, or we can guide you through the mandatory mediation that the court will probably order after the filing.

If it is necessary to take your case to trial in order to get a fair outcome, we are fully prepared to do so. To discuss your divorce concerns with an attorney who will always remain focused on what is best for your individual circumstances, contact us today.
