Memphis Child Custody Attorney

Parents have a duty to care for and provide for their children. This nearly universally accepted premise is a key component of a divorce or separation where there are minor children involved. Parenting plans clarify when children will spend time with each parent, once the parents are divorced. Through a carefully crafted parenting plan, child-parent bonds can be preserved and parents can continue to share responsibilities for their sons and daughters.

Get Experienced Counsel as You Enter Into a Tennessee Parenting Plan

What was once called child custody and visitation is now referred to in Tennessee as the primary residential parent and alternate residential parent which is set out in the parenting plan. The court-approved parenting plan may be part of a divorce or it may be a stand-alone document in an unmarried parent's situation. The parenting plan will account for child support of the child or children.

At Crislip, Philip & Royal , we adeptly guide our clients through the creation or modification of a parenting plan or child custody agreement. We point our clients to the current child support worksheet online at the Tennessee Department of Human Services under Income Shares and help them complete it accurately. Child support, once set, can only be modified by court order. Child support cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, for example. Once support becomes due, it cannot be waived by a court, except in the case of a petition to modify.
