I recently sat down with Judge Bill Swann to discuss the changes he observed in the practice of family law during his 32 years presiding over the dedicated family-law court in Knoxville.
In this episode, we discuss the changes he witnessed in the substantive family law in Tennessee, including:
- the rise of mediation in family-law cases;
- the end of the “tender years” doctrine and gender preferences;
- the types of cases he found to be most rewarding;
- why he found postdivorce child-custody disputes to be the most difficult types of cases;
- the challenge of parental-relocation cases;
- the changes Judge Swann predicts we’ll see in the coming decades; and
- what he’s been up to since retiring from the bench.
