Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Thomas C. Gorham, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dawn Noles Martin (Gorham)

Attorneys 2:

Steven L. West, Huntingdon, Tennessee, for the appellee, Matthew Kendall Martin

Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

This is an appeal from the trial court‘s order modifying child support and setting arrearage. The trial court‘s calculation of child support arrearage includes a set off for credits given the Appellee Father for necessaries provided. The trial court also found that Father was responsible for one-half of the children‘s private school tuition for the three year period prior to Appellant Mother filing her petition for reimbursement of those expenses. The trial court further found that the parties had sufficient income to continue sending their children to private school and that each party should be responsible for one-half of the costs of the private school tuition and fees. Mother appeals. We reverse in part, vacate in part, and remand for a fresh determination of child support arrearages from April 2007 forward, and sufficient findings on the issue of wage assignment in accordance with this opinion.
