Is it possible to divorce, with children (under 18) in Davison county TN without a lawyer or mediator if both parents have filled a parenting plan and in total agreement?

We've been researching but cannot find any forms that allow a married couple (4 years) with children (under 18) to fill out and bring to court where they can be signed off and our divorce made official. Everything I've read so far is about divorcing for those without children, and that it's suggested to go with a mediator or lawyer otherwise. But there must be a way to do this without hiring these $300/hr services, especially when the parents are not contesting anything.

This is a no-fault divorce form for use within the State of Tennessee (PETITION FOR DIVORCE). Most courts will require that this form be completed and filed along with a Marital Settlement Agreement (Minor Children).

  • Right, but the first thing it says on the "Please read this first" above the forms is: "If you have NO children who are under 18, disabled or in high school and you do not own buildings or land or a business with your spouse, or have retirement benefits." – Rocky Assad Jul 20 '16 at 1:11
