Our dedicated team of Franklin child support attorneys is well-versed in all aspects of child support law in Tennessee. We offer a range of comprehensive services to help clients navigate the child support process effectively.

  • Determination

We assist clients in determining the appropriate amount of child support based on Tennessee's child support guidelines. Our family attorneys consider various factors such as the parents' income, the child's needs, and the custodial arrangement to ensure a fair and accurate assessment.

  • Modification

Life circumstances can change, affecting the financial needs of the child. If you experience a significant change in income, job loss, or other relevant factors, our attorneys can help you pursue a child support modification to reflect the current situation accurately.

If the noncustodial parent fails to comply with the child support order, we provide strong advocacy to ensure enforcement. Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling child support enforcement cases and can take the necessary legal steps to collect unpaid child support.

When paternity is in question, we help clients establish or challenge paternity and address related child support matters. Our attorneys are skilled in handling paternity cases and can guide you through the legal process.

  • Child Support Mediation

We recognize the value of reaching amicable resolutions outside of the courtroom. Our attorneys are experienced in child support mediation and can assist you in negotiating fair and sustainable child support agreements that meet the needs of both parents and the child.

Can Child Support Be Negotiated in Tennessee?

In Tennessee, parents cannot agree to waive child support or modify the amount. However, parents can agree on an amount and submit it as part of their parenting plans with a judge's approval. The court will generally not approve of amounts below the guideline. 

How Far Behind in Child Support Before Jail in Tennessee?

Tennessee Code Annotated 36-5-104 allows judges to jail individuals for up to three months for non-payment of child support. However, no set number of missed payments will send a parent to jail.

At What Age Does Child Support End in the State of Tennessee?

In Tennessee, child support obligations end when children turn 18 or graduate high school, whichever is later. However, there are exceptions to this rule.
