Even though divorce proceedings legally ends the relationship between grown ups,
those getting a divorce who have children, pay or receive spousal support and have
a binding agreement or Order From The Court which is where the property that was
obtained during or become part of the martial assets is distributed or sold at some
date in the future could possibly be linked together by means of those issues for
many years. R. Samuel English is experienced in post divorce issues. We have handled
quite a few Tennessee post-divorce issues. I am aware of the sensitive, personal
concerns associated with these kinds of cases, as well as the potential severe financial
impact they carry. I'm going to provide you with the intense and careful representation
your case demands.
If you are thinking of changing your current parenting schedule, recalculating the
amount of child support you pay or receive, I can give you the representation you
need. Parties often make verbal agreements without executing an amendment to their
original divorce. You and your former spouse may have agreed with the new “rules”
you have discussed. Unfortunately, if future conflicts arise, what was once “understood”
is now usually claimed as “never agreed to” by one of the parties, and since Courts
tend not to recognize oral agreements, the original Order is likely to stand with
appropriate penalties assessed, if any, to the party who is not acting in accordance
with that Order.

Post-divorce issues often center around the children’s schedules and payment of support.
Changes may be necessary, which are not driven by the fault or inability of either
party to parent, but as a natural result of the growth of the child(ren), their changing
schedules, needs and/or desires. Changes in the Parenting Plan of the parents may
result in a recalculation of the Child Support. Additionally, there are specific
standards which apply to changes in the parenting schedules, support and relocation
of any children outside the State of Tennessee which you should understand in the
event you and your ex-spouse do not agree to the proposed change.

Conflicts may arise in the way you or your ex-spouse interpret the provisions of
your divorce Order. In some cases, the meaning of a particular provision is not readily
apparent or easily understood. R. Samuel English is experienced in interpreting divorce
Orders and committed to resolving such conflicts to your satisfaction as the law
allows. You may discover that your need for alimony has increased or, if you are
obligated to pay alimony, that your ability to pay has decreased or that the initial
time allotted for alimony is approaching and that you want payments continue. You
may remarry, retire, or your children may be entering college. There are a lot of
factors that play into the payment of support. I will discuss all those with you
on a case by case basis.
