Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Braden Bellar, Carthage, Tennessee, for the appellant, Father.

Attorneys 2:

Lisa C. Cothron, Lafayette, Tennessee, for the appellee, Mother.

Judge(s): FARMER

Father appeals the trial court’s determination that he is willfully and voluntarily underemployed and the parenting schedule established by the trial court. Mother appeals the trial court’s determination that it lacked the authority to award attorney’s fees under Tennessee Code Annotated § 36-5-103(c). We affirm the trial court’s judgment with respect to the parenting schedule and the finding of voluntary underemployment, and vacate with respect to the issue of attorney’s fees. We remand for further proceedings consistent with this Opinion.
