Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Morgan E. Smith, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Cordary Quincy Vernard Brantley.

Attorneys 2:

Shayla Leanne Guy Brantley, Gallatin, Tennessee, pro se.

Judge(s): CLEMENT

In this divorce action, Father contends the trial court erred by adding substantive restrictions to the parties’ agreed upon Permanent Parenting Plan that, inter alia, imposed “paramour” and “lifestyle” restrictions on Father that were not imposed on Mother. We have determined that the trial court unilaterally imposed substantive and material restrictions on Father’s activities during his parenting time without affording him an evidentiary hearing. We have also determined that some of the restrictions placed on Father are too vague to be enforceable and that the Statement of the Evidence does not provide a factual basis for the restrictions placed on Father. For these reasons we vacate the judgment of the trial court and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
