Tennessee has a somewhat unique set of laws and regulations regarding child custody. In many divorce cases, a family law judge will not permit the divorce to be finalized unless a permanent parenting plan has been established first. To get started on the right foot and in the right direction, you should team up with The Brocklin Law Firm, PC and our Nashville custody attorneys today.

A permanent parenting plan – often called a child custody agreement in other states – is a legal document that should cover any and all potential concerns either parent will have after the divorce. When a permanent parenting plan is drafted correctly, everyone benefits, especially the children. When it is not reviewed by a lawyer, it could lead to complications later on, or be outright denied by a family law judge.
Child custody is divided into two forms: legal and physical. A parent’s legal custody right is the ability to make important decisions for the child, such as religious upbringing, medical treatment choices, school attended, and so on. If a parent has physical custody rights, he or she may live with and house the child based on the pre-established parenting plan.
When you are attempting to create a permanent parenting plan, you will need to take the time to sort out both legal and physical custody. In Tennessee, different terms may be used but the language of the agreement will function in the same way.
There is no benefit to skirting around the issue of child custody agreements and parenting plans after a divorce. It needs to be addressed and soon, or else your child’s own sense of stability could be lessened. Our Knoxville custody lawyers can hear your concerns and get to work on a parenting plan that benefits everyone. While we focus on the legalities of your case, you can focus on time spent with your child.
