Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jacob Thomas Thorington, Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Martin William Huffman.

Attorneys 2:

No appellee brief filed.

Judge(s): BENNETT

This is the second appeal of a post-divorce decision concerning child support. In the first appeal, we determined that the trial court erred in failing to make the required findings to justify an upward deviation in child support, thus we vacated the award of child support and remanded for a determination of the appropriate amount. Following the hearing on remand, the trial court set the appropriate amount of child support and determined that Father had overpaid child support. The court did not award Father a judgment or credit in the amount of his overpayment, and Father appeals. We conclude that the trial court abused its discretion in failing to award Father a credit or judgment in the amount of his overpayment.
