If you are contemplating divorce or have made the decision to get divorced,

the first thing you should do is schedule a  Divorce Planning Session with our Memphis, Tennessee divorce attorney.  

When considering a divorce in Tennessee, it is important that you become informed about your legal rights and responsibilities so that you can plan properly for your divorce.  Our Memphis divorce attorney offers a low cost divorce planning session to provide you with an in depth analysis of your situation, helpful legal information, and a divorce strategy tailored to your particular situation to save you time, money, and stress.  The cost of the divorce planning session is $100.  If you decide to retain our Memphis divorce attorney, your divorce planning session fee will be credited towards the overall cost of your legal services, making it free in effect.  Our divorce planning sessions can be completed in our office, by phone, or by video conference.  You may choose the method that is most convenient for you. You can expect your divorce planning session to last from 45 minutes to one hour.


We want the time you spend with our divorce attorney to be meaningful and valuable.  That is why when you schedule a divorce planning session, our divorce attorney will send you an email informing you how to prepare for your divorce planning session.  The email will also contain a link to our divorce intake form for you to complete prior to your divorce planning session. 


During your divorce planning session, our Memphis divorce attorney will:

  • Review your questionnaire and other relevant documents to gain a thorough understanding of your particular situation;

  • Review any divorce documents that you may have drafted on your own or received from a divorce document preparation company, your spouse, or other attorney;

  • Talk with you to learn more about your situation, your concerns, and your goals;

  • Share our honest thoughts regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your position;

  • Provide you with information relating to alimony, spousal support, distribution of marital assets, distribution of marital debt, child custody, visitation, and child support;

  • Collaborate with you to set realistic goals and develop a divorce strategy tailored to your unique situation and goals;

  • Inform you what divorce options you may benefit from using;

  • Provide you with an estimated cost of your divorce services; and

  • Discuss your payment options.


In addition to providing you with legal information, another objective of our divorce planning session is to determine whether or not you and our firm are a good fit for each other.  There are many reasons why we might decide not to represent you, but if we make such a decision, it should never be taken personally. 


If we decide you are a good fit for us and you feel likewise, we will discuss your payment options, decide on a payment plan, and execute an Attorney-Client Agreement.  If you would like to take advantage of one of our affordable payment plans, you will need to bring a government issued photo identification, your last two check stubs (or other proof of income), a copy of your last bank statement, and a debit or credit card with you to your divorce planning session. The payments for your attorney fees will be automatically drafted from the debit or credit card you provide in accordance with the payment plan you choose. 


 Please note that your divorce planning session is confidential and subject to the attorney-client privilege, even if you do not retain our Memphis divorce attorney.


If you are interested in having our divorce attorney act as a neutral third party and mediate your divorce, then you and your spouse will have to attend the Divorce Planning Session together.
