Our Selmer, Tennessee law firm represents people throughout west Tennessee, helping them achieve positive results in a wide range of family law matters including:

• Divorce

Although many divorce cases can be handled amicably, there may be times where you and your spouse simply cannot reach an agreement. If you are struggling with the various matters in your divorce, we can help you achieve positive settlements in or out of court. Click here to contact DJ with divorce questions or concerns.

• Child support

The goal of Tennessee judges and family courts is to ensure children do not suffer as a result of divorce. They prioritize the well-being of the child when making decisions during the proceeding. There are significant changes your children will have to go through during a divorce, but this does not mean their lifestyle needs to change entirely.
By establishing a child support agreement, we can help see that your children do not experience a diminished quality of life due to lack of financial support. Click here to contact DJ with child support questions or concerns.

• Child custody or change of custody

Norton Law Office understands that divorce can have a serious impact on children, especially if both parents are fighting over who will have custody. It is very important that you try to put your own feelings aside and make decisions which will benefit your children.
We strive to resolve disputes between you and your spouse in the most amicable manner possible. Although it is always preferable if you and your spouse can reach an agreement out of court, we are prepared to represent you in litigation. If the decision is left up to the judge, he or she will be responsible for deciding who has primary custody or if custody will be shared. The judge will also decide the terms of your visitation or parenting plan schedule. Click here to contact DJ with child custody questions or concerns.

• Adoptions

Adopting a child is one of the most wonderful things you can do. However, while taking in a non-biological child is exciting, it is also a major legal commitment. For this reason, the adoption process can be long and even frustrating if you don’t understand the legal steps you have to take. Click here to contact DJ with adoption questions or concerns.
