Though divorce can be a frightening experience, the right attorney can help make the process less stressful.  The family law attorneys at our firm located in Knoxville and Sevierville, Tennessee have extensive experience handling divorce matters and are committed to helping you negotiate a settlement that is fair and in your best interests.  You are likely to face some difficult decisions during this time that can have a direct impact on the lives of you and your family and we can help you understand the legal implications of those decisions.

Child Custody

Perhaps the most sensitive issue in divorce law is the matter of child custody.  In serving the best interests of the child, the court makes the final determination regarding custody, but couples can agree to joint custody, which the court often approves.  However, if you and your spouse cannot agree on a custody arrangement, you will need an experienced family law attorney who can help negotiate the most favorable arrangement for you and your children.

Child Support

The amount of child support that a parent receives is determined by a complex equation that considers both parents' income and the time each parent spends with the children.  Overall, the needs of the child are the most important factor in child support calculations, but an experienced family law lawyer can help you reach an arrangement that best fulfills the needs of you and your children.

Spousal Support

Spousal support, or alimony, is intended to be rehabilitative and provide financial assistance to a former spouse.  In Tennessee, there are many forms of alimony, both permanent and temporary, that are available to spouses.  For many divorcing couples, payment of spousal support can be a contentious issue, but our Knoxville and Sevierville family law lawyers serving Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and all of Tennessee can help you prepare an arrangement that serves your immediate and long-term needs.


The adoption process can be complex, and adoptive families need experienced representation to ensure that their legal rights are protected.  At Baker Associates in Knoxville and Sevierville, our family law attorneys understand that adopting a child can be one of the most gratifying experiences of your life, and we are committed to helping parents successfully navigate the often difficult adoption process.
