Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen W. Pate, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellant, Leann Barnes

Attorneys 2:

Daryl M. South, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellee, David Ellett Barnes

Judge(s): HIGHERS

Following a five-day divorce trial, the trial court valued and divided the parties’ sizeable marital estate, awarded $6,000 per month in alimony in futuro to Wife, and declined to award attorney’s fees to either party. On cross-motions to alter or amend, the trial court altered its division of marital property as to several assets, and it modified the alimony award from $6,000 per month in alimony in futuro to $4,300 per month in rehabilitative alimony for four years. Wife then filed another post-trial motion, pro se, which the trial court denied. Wife appeals. We affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand for such other proceedings as may be necessary.
