Restricting a parent's visitation privileges

The issue of visitation can often become contentious as couples in Clarksville try to work their way through divorce proceedings. Often, the circumstances surrounding the end of a marriage may engender a good amount of distrust between a couple. Some may cite that mistrust (or at least the cause of it) as a reason for restricting their soon-to-be ex-spouses' access to their children. Some may attempt to bar any access to the children whatsoever, while others will ask of any visitation that is granted be restricted.

Decision to seal divorce case contradicts state’s legal precedent

It likely may not come as a shock to many in Clarksville that divorce cases between couples can often get ugly. The risk that those who choose to go through their proceedings in family court take is that the details of their cases then become a matter of public record. For some, that can include details about family disputes, financial misfortunes, cases of infidelity, and domestic violence accusations. While some may argue that such details do not need to be shared with the public, others may claim that a couple should understand that the decision to carry out its divorce in a public venue essentially invites outsiders in to see the details of their cases.

Suspending an obligor’s license for child support arrears

One of the ironies that accompanies divorce is that separated couples in Clarksville must still continue their relationships to a certain extent if they have children. Any negative emotions that may linger between a couple may continue to manifest themselves through actions such as a failure to meet child support payment obligations. Information shared by the U.S. Census Bureau shows that over 22 percent of parents owed child support in 2014 had to request intervention in order to enforce their agreements. Given how much custodial parents may rely on such payments in order to support themselves and their kids, it is little wonder why the law allows them recourse in order to do so.

What is palimony?

As societal norms change in Clarksville, so too do many of the common definitions assigned to certain relationships and associations within the local community. Take cohabitation, for example. As recently as 10-15 years ago, living together without being married may have been considered a taboo. Yet U.S. Census data from 2012 showed that 7.8 million couples were cohabitating during that year. If you have chosen to cohabitate with a partner, you should know that while such a relationships may preserve you from dealing with some of the issues inherent with matrimony, you also may have little to no recourse when it comes to receiving support should your relationship end.
