Handling All Divorce Challenges

Common divorce challenges we address include:

  • Cost and speed: If both parties can agree on core parenting and asset-division questions, we can file for a divorce based on irreconcilable differences. In this process, only a few office appointments are likely necessary to dissolve your marriage. After you sign a sworn agreement, we can file it with the court and get a hearing scheduled at the end of the 60-day required waiting period, or at the end of the 90-day required waiting period, if children are involved.
  • Division of assets/property: Mishandling of the asset division or a lack of aggressive tactics to protect your interests now can jeopardize adequate resources for you and your family in the future. Nashville attorney Lisa Millican Ewing has a background in accounting that she will put to work aggressively protecting your property rights.
  • Custody, visitation and support: We work with you to develop a custody, visitation and child support proposal that will serve the best interests of your children.
  • Modifications: Changes in custody or parenting schedule require that they be in the best interest of your child and that there be a material change in circumstances involving the child and the child’s parents. Changes in child support require a 15 percent change in the child support amount based upon the child support guidelines. We will meet with you to discuss the facts of the case and whether your case will meet the court’s requirements for making the change that you wish. We can also advocate for you if you wish to relocate with your child and the other parent opposes the relocation.

We have handled a broad range of legal challenges related to family law and divorce. These include mediation, which is often required by the courts, the drafting of prenuptial agreements and the filing of restraining orders to stop harassment, the bad-mouthing of another parent, and the cancellation of insurance policies.

We also handle the complex issues involved with military divorce. We understand the unique challenges divorcing parties face when one spouse serves on a base out of state or overseas, especially when children are involved. Some of these challenges include dividing military pensions, and planning for scheduled and unscheduled service requirements. Our goal is help the divorce process go as smoothly and effectively as possible so our clients and their families can move forward with their lives.
