Franklin Divorce Lawyers

Fort, Holloway, & Rogers, LLC, is a hometown divorce law firm in Franklin, Tennessee. We serve all of Williamson and Maury counties with high-quality counsel, fierce advocacy and experienced strategy.

We have deep roots in the area. We want to see local families get stronger. That’s the goal of our divorce practice — building a better future for our clients.

Tennessee Divorce Overview

Either you or your spouse must have been a resident for at least six months before you file for divorce in Tennessee. If you have a child under 18, you must wait 90 days before a court can award you a divorce. If you do not have children under 18, that waiting period reduces to 60 days.

In practice, divorces sometimes take longer than this. Our attorneys can help you get any support and protection you might need while waiting for these legal processes to finish.

Grounds for Divorce in Williamson/Maury Counties

There are several grounds for divorce in Tennessee law, meaning that there are several reasons you can start a divorce case. The most common in this area is no-fault. This is also known as “irreconcilable differences”. Others include:

  • Adultery, bigamy, desertion, pregnancy by another man at the time of marriage
  • Conviction of infamous crimes, prison sentences for a felony, post-marital chronic intoxication, attempted murder of a spouse, inhuman treatment
  • Separation for more than two years

Our attorneys can work with you to decide the best first steps. Once the case formally begins, we then move toward resolving any disputes with your spouse.

Dispute resolution typically starts with mediation. The Tennessee Supreme Court recognizes several of our attorneys as Rule 31 Listed Family Law Mediators. In the event your case goes to trial, rest assured that we also have extensive litigation experience. We pursue our clients’ interests until they get the deals they deserve.

High-Asset Divorce

High-asset couples require special attention, which our divorce law firm provides. We have the experience to help older couples divide their significant equity and retirement accounts.

We also negotiate and litigate division of marital estates of business owners, investors, executives and other individuals with complex assets. We are able to help if your marriage holds:

  • Artwork or collections
  • Foreign accounts or real estate
  • Business interests
  • Stock options
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Investment property
  • Mineral rights
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Any other non-cash or non-conventional holdings

Military Divorce

Who gets to keep parenting benefits in a marriage between servicemembers? Can a non-servicemember custodial parent of military children keep on-base housing? These are complex questions that go beyond the normal scope of civilian divorce.

We have the experience you need for these types of cases. Apart from being skilled litigators and negotiators, we also have knowledge of the military regulatory and legal systems. In fact, Attorney Michael “Stuart” Saylor served on active duty in Afghanistan as top legal advisor to a Special Operations Task Force.

Our Family worked with Sam Holloway for over 3 years on our case on adopting our son. We would highly recommend him! He was responsive, knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy. Our case was complicated but he knew what he was doing through each step of the way. We would use him again for an attorney if we ever need one again.


Mike Fort was presented with a high conflict, high stakes and challenging case that was botched by the first attorney I worked with. His knowledge of the law, aptitude for understanding intelligent (yet dangerous individuals) and tenacity was remarkable! The outcome worked in my favor, yet could have easily not under different counsel. My life and the lives of my daughters are forever changed and better for his fight for justice. Truly.
