Discovery is an important process for contested divorce and family law cases. If Discovery is done correctly, it can provide IMPORTANT INFORMATION, much needed PROOF, CONFESSIONS, and TESTIMONY that may be introduced at the trial.

"Interrogatories" are usually written questions that are answered in writing and under oath. It takes skill and experience to formulate the right questions to  maximize this investigative process. Warning:  Some jurisdictions have limits on Interrogatories.  


We can assist you by drafting INVESTIGATIVE, EFFECTIVE and PROBING Interrogatories and Request for Documents SPECIFIC to your case.

CHILD SUPPORT and PARENTING PLANS

Through our Document Preparation Services there is no need for guess work when it comes to something as important as Child Support or the Parenting Plan. 

The Tennessee Child Support Guidelines can be very confusing and are filled with complicated calculations.  It is vital that your Child Support Worksheet  and Parenting Plan are done correctly and that your specific situation is represented effectively. 

Figuring the annual parenting days, including credits for other children, deciding if you qualify for exemptions and what expenses may be deducted can be difficult. Put our experience to work for you.

Whether you are worried that you are going to pay too much child support or concerned that you aren't getting enough child support, allow us to calculate your child support and do the Tennessee Child Support Worksheet for you.  We also assist with modifying child support!


Our rates are reasonable with our affordable payment plan and no credit check.  


Determining overall annual parenting days, vacation and holiday schedules, general and specific parenting responsibilities,  federal dependent  tax exemptions, and understanding the ramifications of selecting the  "Primary Parent" in  the parenting plan can be difficult.  

We can help by preparing your Proposed, Modified or Agreed  Parenting Plan.


WARNING: Due to the Affordable Care Act ("Obama Care"), some decisions may have serious tax consequences.


Let us make it easy with our inexpensive Document Preparation Services.  Don't let Child Support or the Parenting Plan frustrate you or hold up your case.  Contact us today.   We are experienced in modifying child support and parenting plans. 


Does your Parenting Plan meet  the NEW Statutory requirements?

contested divorce or family law case

Need to START a contested divorce or other family law case BEFORE the other party does?  With our Document Preparation Service, we can prepare the necessary and required court documents to begin your contested case in Civil Circuit or Chancery Court. 


Did the other party FILE FIRST? You should have been served with a Summons.  Read your Summons carefully!  It states you must file a "Response", "Defense" or "Answer" within 30 days from the date the Summons was served on you. If you don't,  or your reply is not done correctly, a Default Judgment will be rendered against you.  A Default Judgment can limit your rights and have a devastating affect on you and your family.  A payment plan may depend upon the time restraints  and deadlines of the case.  


DELAY MAY LIMIT or DESTROY YOUR OPTIONS!
