- Divorce can be one of the most stressful times in a person's life, especially if the parties have been married for any significant period of time. Usually many assests have been acquired during the marriage. When the parites agree on the division of assets the divorce goes smoothly. However, when the parties are not in agreement, an experienced family law attorney is needed to address such issues as the valuation and division of the marital estate and potential alimony.
- Child Custody is probably the most highly contested issue in divorce cases. Things can get pretty nasty very quickly when people are fighting over the most precious commodity in their lives. However, children are often viewed by the court as possessions rather than the individual gifts that they are and are at times used as weapons by one party against the other. With that being the case, there is no one more dedicated to protecting the rights and best interests of your children than Camellia S. Saunders.
Child custody cases do not only arise between married persons. They also arise when children have been born out of wedlock. However, the laws and venues differ somewhat when dealing with a child that is the product of a marriage versus a child that is not. An experienced family law attorney can help you navigate the differences in the laws to get the best possible outcome in your case.
- Child Support stems from the legal right of every child to be take care of and provided for by the very persons that brought them into this world. It is a right that belongs to the child and the child alone. This right does not belong to either of the parents to disregard or waive. Tennessee usues the income share model to determine what child support should be ordered in each individual case. Child support will be determined by factors including the income of both parents, the number of days that each child spends with a parent, the cost either parent pays for child care, health care, and any other activities that involve the child. Other factors and/or credits may come into play when determining child support.
Child support can be determined through both a divorce case and a case where the parties where never married. Either way, the same determining factors will apply.
- Juvenile Court/Dependency and Neglect of a child is one of the hallmarks that ignite Camellia S. Saunders' passion as a lawyer. However, too many times children end up getting a raw deal because their voices are too small to be heard if they are even heard at all. When you need a booming voice to speak on behalf of your child's welfare, Camellia S. Saunders is the attorney to call.
