Nobody wants to go through a divorce. It is one of the most trying events that an adult can face, and the ramifications may linger long after the legal process is over. Having practiced law since 2005, attorney Ryan F. Fetters is well aware of the emotional and financial stress caused by the collapse of a marriage. If you are considering filing for divorce, call Ryan today for your free 30-minute consultation.

Child Custody

Ryan Fetters understands that a child custody dispute is often one of the most contentious issues during the divorce process. Parents who cannot agree on a parenting plan may ask a judge to make decisions about when the child will be with each parent. The judge will examine several factors to determine what schedule is in the best interests of the child, including each parent’s ability to prepare their child for adulthood, the child’s relationship with each parent and the child’s emotional and developmental needs.

Child Support

Under Tennessee state law, both parents – regardless of whether or not they are married – must financially support their children. The amount of child support depends on the number of children, the combined income of both parents, and parenting time (i.e. the child custody arrangement). Child support is one of the most complicated issues of the divorce process, and Ryan Fetters is here to help you and your family navigate the path forward.


Adopting a child is a monumental decision that changes the lives of all involved. While Tennessee’s adoption laws are fairly welcoming, the process is nonetheless complex and time-consuming. Working with an experienced family law attorney can help you and your family navigate the Department of Children’s Services parent preparation system, PATH, a prerequisite for every prospective parent.
