Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1: Edward Howard North, III, Manchester, Tennessee, for the appellant, Susan Geary.

Attorneys 2: Clinton H. Swafford, Winchester, Tennessee, for the appellees, Carl Robin Geary, Jr. and Rachel Geary Lawson.

Judge(s): BENNETT

This appeal presents the issue of whether a widow who signed a prenuptial agreement is entitled to an elective share of her husband’s estate. The evidence does not preponderate against the trial court’s finding that the widow signed the prenuptial agreement knowledgeably. Given the validity of the prenuptial agreement, we affirm the trial court’s decision denying the widow an elective share.
