Condition for Residency


It is essential for the petitioner to be the resident of Tennessee when the incident for the breakage or reason of divorce arose. If this happened outside the Tennessee, either of the spouses has to be resident of this state immediately 6 months before filing the case. Papers can be submitted into the county where the couple was residing when separation happened. Otherwise it can be submitted into the county of respondent or petitioner if the defendant is non-resident of Tennessee.

Reasons for the Divorces


Tennessee deals only with the valid reasons from the no-fault or fault based category of grounds for divorces. Both the spouses are required to agree with the reasons and must validate them later on.

Following are the examples of these reasons:

Principle of Child Custody


Tennessee prefers the joint custody of the child for the better nurture and nourishment. However, if this decision is unable to be made then it gives the custody to either of the spouse on the basis of following factors:

Rules for Property Distribution


Tennessee is an equitable distribution state and equally divides the marriage property of both spouses in two equal halves. In this regard, it does not do anything with the separate property of the spouses, their gifts, and inheritances that they have got. Following factors are considered in division of property:

Rules for Spousal Support


Tennessee favors either of the spouses if she or he deserves the spousal support. This support can be paid in lump sum, partially, or in perpetual or limited installment basis for the whole life of spouse seeking for this support.

Following factors are analyzed in taking the decision of this issue:

Child Support Guidelines


Courts in Tennessee have the rights to pay for the child support. In this regard, spouse who has to pay for the support may be required to have an insurance policy for the health of child. These child support payments can be distributed through the clerk of the relevant court. Official child support guidelines have also been set forth in the law of Tennessee that helps in determining the amount of support. However, if the amount comes out to be unjust for either of spouse, it is reassessed to make it reasonable and just.

Mediation In Case Of Divorce


Upon either of spouses' request, court can delay the decision and can provide a chance for reconciliation especially when the joint child custody becomes an issue. Moreover, it can order to attend the training and counseling courses for the reconciliation.

Filing Pro Se Divorce


There is no need of a lawyer when applying for divorce in the state of Tennessee. A divorce case which is filed without any help of an attorney in any of the states is known as Pro Se Divorce.

Literally, Pro Se is a Latin phrase and it means "on her or his own". Process of getting the divorce without the help of lawyer may vary from one State to another. These types of divorces are perfectly legal and enforceable in Tennessee, and are actually very convenient. Usually, once settlements have been made regarding property distribution and custody matters among the spouses in case of a mutual divorce, Pro Se Divorces are filed.
