Signs you are ready for divorce according to psychologists

If you're thinking about divorce, but not yet sure if it's time, you might want to consider speaking with a mental health counselor or psychologist.

Proving paternity in family law matters

There are two primary circumstances in which the paternity of an alleged father becomes critical in Tennessee family law.
