Is Tennessee a “No Fault” Divorce State?

Tennessee law recognizes "no fault" divorce, which means you can file for divorce after a 2-year separation if no minor children are involved. Irreconcilable differences are enough grounds to file for divorce in Tennessee. To prepare for a claim, contact an experienced divorce attorney to take a look at the state divorce forms with you.

What is Domestic Assault?

Domestic violence is a category of assault committed against someone who is a:

  • Current or former spouse
  • Cohabitant
  • Dating or sexual partner
  • Blood or adoptive relative
  • Current or former relative by marriage
  • Adult or minor child of any of the above individuals

What are Orders of Protection?

You may obtain a protective order that will limit the alleged abuser’s ability to see you. While protection orders in Tennessee are generally only valid for 1 year, if a protection order has been granted and you file for divorce, the order remains in effect until the divorce is finalized.

What are Child Support Guidelines in Tennessee?

Child support rules in Tennessee dictate how/when the "Alternate Residential Parent" (ARP) sends money to the "Primary Residential Parent" (PRP) to cover expenses for the child's needs. The basic expenses the judge might order payment for are:

  • food,
  • clothing,
  • housing,
  • transportation,
  • and health insurance.
