Franklin Family Law Attorneys

Serving Families Throughout Middle Tenneessee

At Puryear, Newman & Morton, PLLC, we recognize that divorce, separation, and child custody matters can be complicated, life-changing events with far-reaching and long-lasting consequences for families. That is why our law firm is dedicated to using our more than 100 years of combined experience to help clients navigate uncertain times and ensure their best interests are protected. Our family law attorneys proudly handle a wide range of cases, including:

  • Divorce (Uncontested and Contested) and Separation: We have experience representing clients in a wide range of divorce cases, including uncontested, contested divorce involving complex assets, and legal separation.
  • Post-Divorce Modifications: If you need assistance modifying custody, visitation or support orders, we can guide you through the process. Modifications are often necessary when one party experiences a change in income or location.
  • Juvenile Court Cases: Our attorneys regularly handle juvenile cases in family court, such as truancy, allegations of abuse, and more. We understand how important it is to protect your child's interests and your parental relationships.
  • Mediation and Trial: We can represent clients throughout the mediation process to achieve a cost-effective and amicable solution, or take the case all the way to trial if necessary.
  • Alimony: During a divorce, alimony can be an extremely contentious topic. Whether you are seeking spousal support or requesting support, we can advocate for your financial interests.
  • Child Custody: Our attorneys are experienced at handling custody matters, including establishing a fair custody and visitation plan, resolving disputes, and more.
  • Termination of Parental Rights: If you are in danger of losing your parental rights over your child, we can help guide you through the process and defend you in court.
  • Child Protective Services Investigations: Any allegations involving CPS can put you at risk of losing your child. From accusations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment, we can help you understand your rights and how to regain custody of your child.

Our attorneys routinely handle complicated cases involving complex issues and the division of substantial financial assets. We also assist clients in providing for the care and support of their children during and after a divorce or separation.
