In this week’s news, two Cordell & Cordell attorneys out of Tennessee were named Rising Stars by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters rating service that recognizes outstanding attorneys. Kimberly Gray of Franklin and Tiffany Yates of Memphis both earned the honor for the first time. No more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state are awarded Rising Star status each year.
Dad’s Divorce, a service of Cordell & Cordell P.C., answered a readers question regarding custody rights if he lives in a different state than his children, including whether he would be allowed to obtain joint custody. While this is possible, it is fairly rare. However, he is certainly entitled to visitation rights and should contact an attorney if the mother is denying a court order.
Men’s Divorce, a service of Cordell & Cordell P.C., published a new Attorney Bites video on the difference between separate and community property when it comes to dividing assets in divorce.
Separate property consists of anything acquired before the marriage, but also includes certain assets acquired during the marriage. These assets are typically immune to division. Community property is generally considered everything acquired during the marriage and is subject to division.
