The result of most custody disputes during a contested or high net worth divorce in Tennessee is that the mother becomes the primary custodian of the child or children who the divorcing couple share.
If you are a father whose goal is a more prominent role in the life of your child, this tendency on the part of our state's family law courts does not have to become your reality. The Franklin family lawyer at Dana McLendon Law wants to level the playing field for fathers and former husbands in the greater Nashville and Middle Tennessee areas.
Contact our father's rights lawyer today to discuss your options today.
Under Tennessee law, joint child custody is allowed with the main consideration being the child’s best interests. As a father, your custody rights will be evaluated based on if you can provide a safe and stable home, provide for the child’s needs, and can parent skillfully.
In 1997, our state legislature determined that a parent's gender should not be a help or hindrance when being considered for primary custody of a child. At Dana McLendon Law, we want to see this law enforced, so that fathers can become more involved in their children's upbringing.
