From calm to contentious situations, Menefee & Brown, P.C. will work with you and with opposing counsel to ensure a fair division of the marital estate during your divorce.
Is Mediation Required For Divorce in Tennessee?
In Tennessee, almost all divorces are required to attend mediation. Mediation offers the parties a real chance to save attorneys fees, take control of the legal process and make decisions regarding parenting issues and property division which are unique to their particular case rather than leaving those decisions in the hands of a detached judge. Our legal team will take the time to understand your goals, provide you with realistic and sound advice, and help you negotiate a favorable mediated agreement to ensure your children are properly provided for and that you receive your fair portion of the marital assets.
Many attorneys arrive at mediation unprepared and begin to formulate offers on the fly instead of taking the time to identify and valuate the marital assets and understanding their client’s goals and expectations. Our attorneys have a strong reputation for showing up prepared at mediation and ready for the next step in the litigation process should mediation fail. This preparedness not only saves mediation time but provides our clients the best shot at a favorable settlement.
Mediation is an important part of the divorce and child custody process. Not only are our attorneys qualified to represent clients in mediation, Michael Menefee is also a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 certified Family Law Mediator. Mr. Menefee has a strong record at resolving cases in mediation as a litigator and as a mediator.
