Barry L. Gold, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Melissa L. Blackshear (Thompson).

Attorneys 2:

John P. Konvalinka and Jillyn M. O’Shaughnessy, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellee, Stephen D. Blackshear.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

This appeal arises from the parties’ post-divorce issues. The father moved to modify his child support obligation because of a significant variance in his income. Following a hearing, the trial court modified the father’s child support obligation from $2,000 a month to $73 per month, awarded a $21,124 judgment against the mother for overpayment, and awarded the father attorneys’s fees in the amount of $10,000. The mother appeals. We vacate and remand.
