    In child custody investigations cases in Tennessee the court compares the fitness of each parent to that of the other parent.
    The court takes into account several factors, including a parent’s ability to provide a loving, clean, safe, and stable environment for the child.
    However the child’s best interest always remains the overriding factor.
    The court then names the parent with whom the child will live for most of the time.It also determines a residential schedule for the other parent.

    Having done that, the court proceeds to draw up a permanent parenting plan which outlines how parents will raise their child after divorce.
    Both parents must adhere to the permanent parenting plan approved by the court.

    Every year a large number of parents entitled to child support money never receive the full amount. Some receive no money at all, even though a court has required the other parent to pay.
    Unfortunately, it can also be difficult for the courts to accurately assess a child’s living situation. This is due to the limited resources and an overburdened system. These factors make it impossible for them to follow through on every case.
