Murfreesboro Family Law Attorney Guides Clients Compassionately Through Sensitive Legal Matters

We provide the honest and helpful advice you need to make good decisions

If your family has encountered a legal issue that impacts your future, it is important to understand as much as you can about your options for addressing the matter. Whether you are ending a marriage, pursuing custody of your children or are adding a family member through adoption, the guidance of an experienced Tennessee family law attorney will greatly improve your chances of obtaining favorable resolutions without unnecessary pain.

At the Law Office of David L. Scott, Attorney at Law, we know how difficult it can be to address family law issues. With that in mind, we provide the supportive and informative representation you need to guide your family through the process before you and onto the next chapter in your lives. With more than a decade of experience, our Murfreesboro family lawyer has the skills and knowledge needed to help your family traverse even the most complex and challenging legal proceedings.

We are qualified to address a wide range of family law issues

Our knowledge of Tennessee family law, combined with our extensive negotiation and litigation experience, allows us to provide guidance to clients facing a number of Tennessee family law issues, including:

  • Divorce: Our Murfreesboro family law attorney offers comprehensive divorce representation designed to address the many facets of the dissolution of a marriage. From the division of marital assets to issues relating to your children, our staff takes great care to advice you on each and every issue involved in your divorce. We have more than a decade of experience litigating and negotiating favorable resolutions to divorce proceedings.

  • Legal separation: In Tennessee, a legal separation is handled much like a divorce. During proceedings, a judge may be asked to make decisions on child custody, support and visitation, as well as the dissolution of assets. We provide the advice you need to understand the impact a legal separation can have on your marriage and your future.

  • Child-related issues: The most emotional aspect of any separation or divorce involving children are those related to the well-being of the kids. We provide honest and straightforward advice about a number of child-related issues, including child custody matters, child support, visitation and parental rights. We will always fight to ensure that the best interests of the children, and your rights, are being considered throughout the proceedings.

  • Spousal support (alimony): For divorcing wives or husbands who have sacrificed a career to care for the household, spousal support may be the only way to move forward financially after the marriage is over. We will help you understand the spousal support system, whether you have a case for support, and the options you have for seeking such support.

  • Modifications of standing orders: While a family law court’s rulings are final, situations may arise that make it necessary to modify a divorce decree. We offer support to clients attempting to modify a wide range of standing orders, including child custody arrangements, child support orders, spousal support orders and visitation plans. We also represent clients involved in parental relocation following a divorce.

  • Adoption: The adoption process is filled with legal steps and guidelines. We provide comprehensive guidance throughout the adoption process and will offer the legal and emotional support you need to add a new loved one to your family.

  • Domestic violence: Our firm assists clients with issues related to domestic violence. Whether you need help securing protection from an abusive significant other or have been wrongly accused of violence yourself, we can help.

  • Paternity: The first step in securing child support in Tennessee is the establishment of paternity. We represent mothers and fathers involved in paternity disputes in an effort to ensure that the child in question will have the future they deserve.

  • Prenuptial agreements: Creating a prenuptial agreement is a viable strategy for protecting specific assets in the event of a divorce. We assist clients during the creation of prenuptial agreements and work to ensure that the agreement offers the most effective protection possible.
