Attorney Help Through Common Family Law Legal Issues

Family law cases are most often divorce cases. Having a successful divorce case requires knowledge, skills, and expertise as well as a personal understanding of the client, their goals and financials. You must also be sensitive to the needs of the client.

Sometimes, a divorce will end amicably, in an uncontested divorce where both parties can agree on property division, custody, and other matters. However, in some cases, a couple will not be able to reach this level of understanding and will need to negotiate the terms of their divorce with the support of a third party.

In this case, it’s good to have a mediator with passion, an extensive background, and current knowledge of the legal system, and you will find no one better in the East Tennessee area than the Shepherd & Long, PC team.

We will guide you through the unknowns of your future and help you build a clearer picture of what your life will be like after divorce.

Our mediation skills can help you during your divorce, whether it is uncontested or contested, and our assistance can save you a lot of time and money. We will relieve all of your worries and protect your interests with a strong case for the court.

Divorce is hard on both parties, especially if one ends up in a challenging financial situation due to loss of income. While the Tennessee law doesn’t guarantee alimony to anyone, we can present a persuasive and winning case for you in the court.

However, no matter which party wins the divorce, there is someone that always loses: the children. Our law firm is especially sensitive to cases involving children. The goal of our work is not to be biased but rather to find healthy and creative solutions that will not disrupt the child’s life while they will still work well for you.

We try to set up arrangements that allow both parents to be equally involved and that will work in the long run.

We are not just divorce and custody attorneys; we also handle other family law issues like adoption, grandparent rights, and many others.

Adoption is one of the happiest parts of Family Law. New parents are excited, and they can’t wait to meet their new family member. Shepherd & Long, PC has helped many clients through the adoption process and has the right skills to help you as well.

From the moment you ask for our help to the moment you hug your child, our team will help you untangle complex laws, meet all of the state requirements and so on. We will ensure that everything runs smoothly and without issues

Have you heard of grandparent rights?

It’s entirely possible that you don’t know your rights as a grandparent – many people don’t. However, after a divorce, especially a complicated one, grandparents from both sides are usually left out, and their visitation reduces.

Grandparents play a pivotal role in a child’s upbringing, and young children often rely on them. In this case, grandparents can contact us, and we’ll help them get the visitation rights they deserve.

Sometimes, grandparents want to save their grandchildren from an abusive parent or parents. We can help in this area as well as we are skilled practitioners of Family Law and grandparent rights.
