Nashville Fathers’ Rights

Nashville fathers’ rights advocates scored a victory for fairness in marital law in June 2011 when Tennessee passed a law requiring judges to attempt to maximize both parents’ involvement in their children’s lives.

Supporters of Nashville dads’ rights were formerly frustrated by the state’s bias against near 50/50 custody splits even when it was demonstrated that fathers were meeting or excelling at their parental obligations.

No law yet exists where 50/50 splits are mandated, but more equitable treatment is becoming the norm. It’s important to note that this law only applies to new judgments, and when custody orders have already been established it will require a significant change in the circumstances of the parents. However, if this has occurred, fathers can petition the courts to consider the case under the new standards.

Because of these enhancements to Tennessee family law it’s more important than ever for dads who wish to maximize their involvement in their children’s lives to seek counsel who understand the challenges and biases fathers face in the courtroom and who can help them meet their goals.
