Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph Y. Longmire, Jr., Hendersonville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kristi Michelle Carman.

Attorneys 2:

Betty Lou Taylor, Hartsville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Michael Andrew Carman.

Judge(s): CLEMENT

This is a post-divorce parental relocation case. The mother seeks to relocate to Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada, with the parties’ seven (7) minor children, in order to reside with her new husband, a Canadian citizen she met on the internet. The father opposes the relocation. The mother spends substantially more time with the children, thus Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-6- 108(d) applies. Finding there was no reasonable purpose for moving to Canada, that the move would pose a threat of specific and serious harm to the children, and that the move is not in the best interests of the children, the trial court denied the request to relocate. We affirm.
