Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Norris Rickett, Memphis, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter, and Rebekah A. Baker, Senior Counsel, for the appellee State of Tennessee ex rel. Shena Lavette Rickett.


This is a Title IV-D child support case. Father/Appellant appeals the trial court?s modification of his child support obligation on grounds that: (1) the Juvenile Court did not have subject matter jurisdiction to modify the Circuit Court?s child support order; and (2) the trial court erred in applying the Child Support Rules and Regulations in calculating Appellant?s monthly child support obligation. Appellant also appeals the trial court?s award of attorney?s fees in this case. Discerning no error, we affirm and remand.
