Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

K.O. Herston and John F. Weaver, Jr., Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Michael Rentz.

Attorneys 2:

Judith Fain, Johnson City, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jamia Rentz.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

This appeal arises from the Parties’ numerous post-divorce issues. As relevant to this appeal, Father filed a petition to correct his child support obligation, alleging that his alimony payments to Mother should have been considered as income in setting his support obligation. Father also sought to modify his support obligation in recognition of the birth of his new son and his payment of health insurance. Following numerous hearings, the trial court declined to consider Father’s alimony payments in setting the support obligation but modified the obligation to reflect the birth of Father’s son and the payment of health insurance. The court awarded Mother attorney fees. Father appeals. We affirm the decision of the trial court.
