Court: TN Court of Appeals

Sherri E. Miljenovic, Knoxville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Lisa A. White, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Michael Miljenovic.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

This interlocutory appeal concerns an interstate custody dispute. Father attempted to register and modify the child custody provisions of a New Jersey judgment in Tennessee. Mother agreed to the registration but objected to the modification because she believed the trial court did not have subject matter jurisdiction to modify the judgment. The trial court disagreed and registered and modified the judgment. Mother pursued this extraordinary appeal pursuant to Rule 10 of the Rules of Appellate Procedure. Following our review, we hold that the trial court did not have subject matter jurisdiction to modify the judgment.
