Do you need an attorney to help with your child custody battle?

The primary concern in all child custody matters is determining what is in the best interest of the child. The state of Tennessee places a child's best interests, and the continuity of their care, as overriding factors when making child custody decisions. Tennessee law also protects the rights and interests of non-custodial parents and even grandparent. Striking the balance between these two interests requires experienced skill and advocacy. William J. Taylor will work with you to advise you as to the best course of action for you and your children's well being.

It is also important to understand that custody determinations are made based on the comparative fitness of each parent. We work with you to develop a parenting plan to submit for your children. Often these plans establish the primary residential parent, the alternate residential parent, as well as visitation or parenting time for the non-custodial parent. Parenting plans may also include provisions for medical care, education costs, and child support payments.

We are committed to giving you straight-forward advice on child custody matters. You may not always like what we have to say, but you can count on what we say for making tough child custody decisions.
