Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Vivian L. Crandall, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for the appellant, Mary Elizabeth Cook.

Attorneys 2:

Amanda Inman Lowe, Clinton, Tennessee, for the appellee, David Clarence Cook.

Judge(s): GOLDIN

This appeal stems from a final judgment of divorce entered in the Anderson County Chancery Court. Wife appeals several issues, including the propriety of the trial court’s decision to grant a divorce based on irreconcilable differences in the absence of an agreed written marital dissolution agreement. Upon review of the record transmitted to us on appeal, we agree that because there was no written marital dissolution agreement, the trial court erred in granting the divorce between the parties on the basis of irreconcilable differences. Accordingly, we vacate the trial court’s final judgment and remand for such further proceedings as are necessary and consistent with this Opinion.
