Alimony may often be seen by many in Nashville as a form of financial punishment levied against the party in a divorce that makes the most the money. In reality, it is not that at all. When you have been ordered to provide your ex-spouse with spousal support, that support is only meant to last until the point that the party receiving it is able to afford (on their own) the same standard of living they enjoyed while married. Remarriage is often what ends an alimony obligation. Yet what if your ex-spouse refuses to remarry? Many in this ver situation have come to us here at Rogers, Kamm & Shea asking what recourse might be available to them.
As you prepare for your divorce proceedings in Nashville, you may be ready to move on from many aspects of your marriage; your relationship with your pet, however, may not be one of them. Pets are often afforded a great deal of love and sentiment. Just as you cannot imagine not having your children in your life following your divorce, you may feel the same way about your pet. Many have come to us here at Rogers, Kamm & Shea in your same situation wondering how the court handles the issue of pet custody. The answer can be quite complicated.
Divorce turns a child's life upside down, but it is sometimes unavoidable because the adults simply can't live together any longer. For the parents, this presents a challenge because they can't just leave each other alone since they do have kids together. Working as a team can be hard at times, but working through the issues can lead to a well-adjusted child who has the support of both parents.
The most difficult aspect of your divorce in Nashville may likely be not having your kids around you all the time. Placing distance between you and your children no doubt makes parenting more difficult. Yet you can still be a successful parent if you are able to make the most of your parenting time. That includes taking advantage of every minute that is available for you to spend time with your kids. Doing that may be much easier if your custody agreement includes a right of first refusal clause.
