Experienced Divorce Lawyer in Springfield, Tennessee
Divorce, Custody and Mediation Services
The divorce process usually isn’t an easy one, especially when you have kids or your spouse isn’t being amicable.

Our divorce services cover all aspects of potential problems you may encounter in the divorce process.
When it comes to family disputes, people tend to have a very “do-it-yourself” attitude. While it may often be the case that people can handle their own disputes, there are times when disputes surrounding family life must be taken to court. These are matters of the heart and are deeply personal and very emotional, and when you’re emotional, you can’t always make decisions with a clear head. That’s why you should turn to one of our family law attorneys whose expertise and skill can achieve the best outcome for your case.
No one ever wants to get to the point where they need to hire a divorce attorney, but most of the time, it’s your best option. Our lawyers are specially trained to handle difficult divorce proceedings such as:
- Situations of abuse or violence
- Your spouse has a lawyer
- You can’t come to a custody agreement
- Your spouse is being dishonest, uncooperative, etc.
- You just can’t handle it on your own
If you are going through a divorce, you shouldn’t have to deal with everything on your own. The Law Office of Joe R. “Jay” Johnson, II will help you through any situation you may be facing. It is important to know that there is someone fighting for your best interests when going through a divorce, so who better to handle it than the experienced lawyers at our Springfield office?
Children are only children for a short time. Don’t miss out on their childhood – turn to our law office to get the parenting time you deserve. Our attorneys will work closely with you to obtain custody and visitation schedules to protect your precious parent-child relationships that will establish the foundation for their lives.
Children have many needs, and until the age of 18, parents are obligated to support their children financially. We will help you as a parent obtain fair child support from your spouse to ensure that your children are receiving the financial resources they deserve based on both parents’ income, the number of children you have, the time spent with both parents and the number of children residing in each parents’ household.
The adoption process is exciting and emotional. If you’re adopting a child privately or through an adoption agency, you’re going to need an experienced professional to guide you through the process. We will work with you and a child’s birth parents who are trying to put their child up for adoption. Allow us to work out the technicalities so you can focus on enjoying the newest member of your family.
Prior to establishing rights to child support, visitation or custody, paternity must be determined. As a mother, you are not entitled to a child support order until paternity is established, and as a father, you have no visitation or custody rights until the same is declared. Let our law office help you ensure your declaration of paternity has been properly filed to secure rights for you and your children.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
When you get married, the last thing want to worry about is the possibility of a divorce. Unfortunately, it’s something you need to consider as a possibility as a well-constructed prenuptial or postnuptial agreement will be a form of protection for both the spouses in case of divorce. Our attorneys can help you negotiate, write and finalize agreements for the future.
Rule 31 Mediation
Rule 31 Mediation was adopted by the state of Tennessee to provide legal boundaries, rules and procedures to make mediation legally binding. Its purpose is self-determination of the parties, and helps people resolve disputes, clarifies misunderstandings, explores disputes and attempts to find resolutions. Allow us to mediate your dispute to quickly come to a resolution to end your dispute.
