Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael D. Kellum, Johnson City, Tennessee, for the appellant, Edward Keith Morelock.

Attorneys 2:

Regina L. Shepherd, Elizabethton, Tennessee, for the appellee, Ruth Ellen Mick Morelock.

Judge(s): SUSANO

In this divorce case, Edward Keith Morelock (Husband) appeals the trial court’s decisions regarding (1) co-parenting time with the parties’ child; (2) division of marital property, (3) valuation of one of the marital assets, and (4) refusal of the court to award him spousal support. Husband argues that the trial court should have designated him primary residential parent and granted him more residential time with the child. He also asserts that the trial court overvalued the business owned by the parties, and that the court should have equally divided the assets and liabilities of that business rather than awarding and assigning all of them to him. Finally, he argues that the trial court should have ordered Ruth Ellen Mick Morelock (Wife) to pay him alimony. Finding no abuse of discretion, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
