Obtaining A Same-Sex Divorce In Tennessee

Some same-sex couples in Tennessee are finding divorce as complicated as marriage. To protect your interests in divorce, it's important to seek the counsel of an experienced family law attorney.

For more than 35 years, The Vaughan Law Firm has helped clients in the Knoxville area resolve complex issues related to divorce. We offer a free 30-minute consultation to discuss the issues that are important to you.

After the Supreme Court recognized same-sex marriage, many gay and lesbian couples in Tennessee have chosen to get married. Unfortunately, not all marriages last. The same laws that make it legal to get married in Tennessee also make it legal to get divorced — regardless of where you were married.

Unfortunately, some judges do not make the divorce process easy. To avoid surprises in your divorce, it's important to seek the advice of a lawyer who not only understands the law but also Tennessee courts. We are here to help you resolve all of the issues involved in your divorce, including:

  • How marital property division should be accomplished
  • Valuation of assets in divorce
  • Whether one partner is entitled to spousal maintenance after the divorce
  • Visitation and custody rights for adopted children or children from prior relationships

Divorce does not have to be a painful, drawn-out or uncertain process. Attorney Larry Vaughan is a Tennessee Supreme Court mediator. As a result, he can help you resolve your divorce in an amicable fashion. However, if your partner is unreasonable, he is prepared to protect your interests in court.
