Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Should I be represented by a lawyer?
A: In Tennessee, parties are allowed to represent themselves. However, there is an old saying among lawyers: A person who represents himself has a fool for a client. This can be especially true in a complex divorce or domestic relations case. Issues of property division, child co-parenting time, child support, and alimony are complicated. Without a strong legal background, one should not attempt to resolve these matters.
