Joel Thomas Catlett, Jr., v. Marjean Ge'Nell Perryman Catlett
01A01-9605-CH-00244
Authoring Judge: Presiding Judge Ben H. Cantrell
Trial Court Judge: Judge Henry Denmark Bell

The trial court granted the parties a divorce, and ordered the husband to pay the wife alimony in futuro. The parties were also granted joint custody of the teenage children, with the husband to have primary physical custody. On appeal, the husband challenges the nature and amount of the alimony award, and the trial court’s failure to order the wife to pay child support. We remand this case to enable the trialcourt to make the findings of fact in regard to child support that are required by Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-5-101(e)(1). In all other respects we affirm the trial court.
