Each Memphis divorce lawyer at our firm has extensive experience with and vast knowledge of the laws governing divorce in Tennessee. Larry and Nick Rice wrote the book that is widely recognized as the national standard for divorce lawyers. Divorce is never pleasant, and it is often confusing and complex. With Rice Law as your guide, you can get through it.

Personalized Attention and Tailored Solutions

Every divorce presents its own unique challenges, which is why the team at Rice Law is committed to providing strategies and solutions that are tailored to the individual needs of our clients. Whether you are seeking spousal support or fighting for custody of your children, you can rely on our team to walk you through every step of the process while protecting your interests.

In Tennessee, you can file for either a no-fault or a fault-based divorce. Our attorneys can help you navigate whichever process you decide to move forward with.

Below are the state’s no-fault divorce options:

  • Irreconcilable differences
  • 2 years of separation without minor children

If you are seeking a fault-based divorce, here are some of the grounds available:

  • Adultery
  • Attempted murder
  • Bigamy
  • Impotence
  • Conviction of a felony
  • Willful or malicious desertion for at least a year without reasonable cause
  • Cruel and inhuman conduct or treatment
  • Habitual drug abuse or drunkenness

Obtaining a fault-based divorce in Tennessee can be difficult. You will need evidence that proves fault, including video or audio recordings, eyewitness testimony, and financial documents.

Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, you can feel confident that our attorneys have what it takes to obtain the best possible results for your case. We understand how emotionally taxing this experience can be, which is why we are dedicated to providing compassionate guidance and strong legal support. Our law firm also provides mediation services for those who wish to settle their divorce amicably and without having to go to court. Through the mediation process, you and your spouse can negotiate the terms of your divorce, which will ultimately give you both more control over the outcome.

With more than 75 years of combined experience, you can rest assured your case is in good hands with us.
