Protecting Your Rights During Child Custody Disputes

It is the children of divorced parents who are often the most affected in contested litigation. When adults perceive the divorce process as a competition, kids become the prize in this "winner-take-all" match. Sole custody is the trophy these parents seek regardless of the long-term repercussions on a parent-child relationship. We work hard with our clients to maximize parenting time while still protecting the child's best interest.

If your former spouse is committed to securing sole custody of your child and you are concerned about the consequences of court action, you need a well prepared course of action. Fighting for custody without legal counsel can result in truly disastrous results.

The family law attorneys at The Barnett Firm have been defending our clients' custody and visitation rights for more than 10 years. We have the legal insight you need to address these concerns and design a parenting agreement that allows you to have maximum access to your child.

Our legal professionals take pride in the streamlined approach we take to resolving these sensitive domestic relations matters. The result of our emphasis on efficiency helps you avoid prolonged legal proceedings in Tennessee's family court system allowing you to focus on your relationship with your child.
