It is rare that a couple who is going through the divorce process will agree on everything from the outset. Minor disagreements are common, even if both parties agree that a divorce is the right way to proceed. In the State of Tennessee, however, ANY disagreement makes an uncontested divorce become contested. This is why the mediation and negotiation phases of a divorce proceedings are so critical.

If there are no disagreements from either party in a divorce, then your Clarksville attorney will prepare the marriage dissolution documents that are mandated by law. If you have children, a permanent parenting plan must also be filed for the court’s review when the initial complaint is filed. Once this occurs, you must wait the mandatory amount of time for the divorce to proceed, which is a minimum of 60 days and a maximum of 90 days if children are apart of the divorce.
After the waiting period expires, the typical experience seen is a brief final hearing before the court where the divorce is finalized.
