If there is one takeaway from the Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos divorce, it's this — sign the prenup. Although the wealthiest couple in the world live in a community property state, at least one website is reporting that the two never signed a prenuptial agreement.
If you are getting divorced in Tennessee, it is not uncommon to learn that your spouse wants to keep your house instead of selling it. This happens quite often, especially when a couple has children who still live at home. The emotional desire to maintain any sense of stability and familiarity for kids is understandable. However, you should be careful to not allow this emotional tug to put you in a bad financial situation.
The hope is that when parents share custody in Nashville, any negative feelings that they might have for each other (or the other's new partners) can be put aside for the good of the kids. Placing distance between feuding former spouses may serve to alleviate some of the tension in their relationship, yet inevitably there will be situations where they must encounter one another (such as in custody exchanges). Such exchanges need not be more than just a cordial exchange that last no longer than a few minutes, yet sadly, there are times when they can devolve into full-blown altercations.
