Starting the divorce process can be a very daunting task. There are so many decisions to be made, so many factors to consider, and in many cases, other people, such as children, to care for. Tennessee state laws and filings related to divorce, child custody, and financial support are complex. There is a lot of pressure on you, and all this at one of the most stressful, and perhaps confusing, times of your life.

A divorce has legal, financial, and emotional aspects, all of which are addressed by the collaborative divorce process. Still, the emotional stress of divorce can make it hard to think clearly. You may find yourself feeling overwhelmed and confused, or you may be acting in a way that is unfamiliar to you. Education may be your best defense.
