Custody & Support

Custody & Support

Custody & Support

 Typically, one of the most stressful and heart-wrenching consequences of the divorce process is deciding child custody. In Tennessee, the law states that the courts must consider the "best interest of the children" involved.  Tennessee also looks at such factors as grandparents' and caregivers' rights when making child custody decisions. The court will consider several factors to help them determine which parent is best able to provide for the children.  Once the court orders a custody arrangement, it can be difficult to change.  Circumstances must change substantially to justify the court revisiting the original order.  When you retain Candice K. Mendez, you can rest assured that any child support determination made by the court will be fair and equitable and in the best interest of the child.
