Head Comment: With J. Steven Stafford, P.J.,W.S., dissenting.

Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Vincent Perryman, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Isaac R.

Attorneys 2:

Terita Hewlett Riley, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Takara F.

Judge(s): GOLDIN

Following an announcement in open court that the parties agreed to the terms of a permanent parenting plan, the trial court entered an order purporting to adopt the agreed-upon plan. Father appeals from this order, arguing that certain terms of the plan entered by the trial court do not match the announced agreement. Having reviewed the record, we observe that there is neither an attached child support worksheet reflecting what Father?s child support would be based on the modified parenting schedule, nor any ruling on child support by the trial court. Accordingly, we conclude that the order appealed is not a final judgment so as to confer jurisdiction on this Court. Tenn. R. App. P. 3. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this Opinion.
