Types of Custody

This is what those terms mean:

  • Primary residential parent: This refers to the parent that the child lives with the most. While the child is with him or her, daily parenting decisions can be made by this parent. Final parenting decisions may still be split between the parents or relegated to one parent, depending on their agreement.

  • Alternative residential parent: This refers to the parent that the child lives with for less time. Daily parenting decisions can be made by this parent as long as the child is in his or her care. Typically, the alternative resident parent pays support to the primary residential parent. 

Who Gets Custody Under Tennessee Law?

The goal of Tennessee law as it relates to child custody is to come to an arrangement that best benefits the child or children after a divorce. However, it is also the goal for both parents to have as much participation in their children’s lives as possible, as long as it is a healthy, beneficial relationship. 

We have proudly served the Nashville community since 1990. Call our family law attorneys today at (615) 933-2435 to schedule an initial consultation.
