Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Cynthia A. Cheatham, Manchester, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jamie Treadwell.

Attorneys 2:

William A. Lockhart, Tullahoma, Tennessee, for the appellee, Gary Thomas Lamb.

Judge(s): BENNETT

This appeal involves the financial aspects of a divorce, which ended a twelve-year marriage. The trial court granted both parties a divorce, divided the marital estate, and awarded Wife rehabilitative alimony for twenty-four months, provided she actively pursued a teaching degree at Middle Tennessee State University. Wife filed a motion to alter or amend the award of alimony to remove the education and vocation requirements. The trial court denied the motion. Wife filed a motion pursuant to Tennessee Rule of Civil Procedure 60.02 seeking relief from the trial court's order dividing the marital estate due to Husband's alleged fraudulent withdrawals from the parties' marital stock account. The trial court denied the motion. On appeal, Wife takes issue with the educational and vocational requirements the trial court placed on the spousal support award and with the trial court's division of the marital estate. She also appeals the trial court's denial of her Rule 60.02 motion. We affirm the trial court's judgment in all respects.
