Custody of the Children in Tennessee

The state will award joint or sole custody in a divorce case based on what would be in the best interests of the child. If the parents are able to work together and come up with an acceptable custody agreement together, this will be given high priority. In addition, the wishes of a sufficiently mature child will be considered.

Tennessee Child Support Guidelines

The standard state-ordered child support guidelines in Tennessee apply in almost every case. Both parents’ gross incomes and child-related expenses are considered when the support order is calculated. The duty to support will continue until emancipation. This can occur through a legal action, by the child turning 18 or graduation from high school, whichever comes first.
