Divorce in Tennessee: Essential First Steps for Attorneys

Live Webinar: Thursday, August 31, 2017

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Central / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to get a divorce case off on the right foot, and achieve better outcomes for your clients, while earning valuable CLE.



Your client has split with his or her spouse or is contemplating ending the marriage. As the attorney, getting the case off to the right start is critical. You must take care to gather all pertinent information from your client. Then you must decide what is best for your client – an annulment, a separation, or a divorce.

Initiating the court proceeding can create obstacles. Does the court have personal jurisdiction over the other spouse? Can service of process be obtained over the other spouse? Do you need to obtain court orders immediately to protect your client’s safety or to safeguard the assets of the marriage?

Join your colleagues for a quick CLE update on the most important first steps when dealing with a divorce case in Tennessee. The webinar presenter will guide you through the initial steps to take and alert you to potential procedural pitfalls you may encounter.

Learn how to get a divorce case off on the right foot, and achieve better outcomes for your clients, while earning valuable CLE.
