Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stanley F. LaDuke, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, David A. Smarsh.

Attorneys 2:

Browder G. Williams, Kingston, Tennessee, for the appellee, Wilma J. Solock Smarsh.

Judge(s): FRANKS

This is a divorce case of a marriage of approximately 34 years. After hearing the evidence, the Trial Judge awarded the divorce to the wife, "equally" divided the parties' marital property, ordered the husband to pay the wife permanent alimony of $500.00 a month, and awarded the wife $10,000.00 in partial payment of her attorney's fees. The husband appealed and contended inter alia that the wife was not entitled to permanent alimony, nor was she entitled to have an award of attorney's fees against him. We affirm the Judgment of the Trial Court.
