Williams v. Williams

Supreme Court of Mississippi

January 17, 2019

TRACY MARIE MILES WILLIAMS
v.
BRENT REID WILLIAMS

          DATE OF JUDGMENT: 02/01/2017

          DeSOTO COUNTY CHANCERY COURT HON. VICKI B. DANIELS JUDGE

          TRIAL COURT ATTORNEYS: L. ANNE JACKSON LEIGH ANN DARBY JERRY WESLEY HISAW LUTHER PUTNAM CRULL, JR. VANESSA WINKLER PRICE

          ATTORNEYS FOR APPELLANT: JERRY WESLEY HISAW VANESSA WINKLER PRICE

          ATTORNEY FOR APPELLEE: LUTHER PUTNAM CRULL, JR.

          BEFORE RANDOLPH, P.J., MAXWELL AND BEAM, JJ.

          BEAM, JUSTICE

         ¶1. This appeal and cross-appeal arise from a judgment of divorce in the DeSoto County Chancery Court. At the trial of this matter, the chancellor granted Brent and Tracy Williams an irreconcilable-differences divorce and resolved the issues upon which the parties could not agree. At issue in the direct appeal is (1) whether the chancellor erred by not providing Tracy a set visitation schedule with their teenage son, (2) whether the chancellor erred in requiring Tracy to pay child support, (3) whether the chancellor erred in the valuation of the Williams's business interests, and (4) whether the chancellor erred in finding an airplane and a boat to be marital property. On cross-appeal, the issue is whether the chancellor erred by not ordering Tracy to make monthly payments to Brent on his $1 million judgment award. Finding no merit to the assignments of error on appeal or cross-appeal, we affirm the judgment of the chancery court.

         FACTS AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

         ¶2. Brent and Tracy married on March 5, 1993, and separated on September 1, 2013. The parties had three children, two of whom are emancipated. The youngest child, Kendall Williams, was fourteen years old at the beginning of this matter and seventeen years old by the time the chancellor ruled. At present, he is eighteen years old, attending IMG Academy, an advanced multi-sport and educational institution in Bradenton, Florida, and is not living with either parent.

         ¶3. On October 3, 2013, Brent filed his complaint for divorce. Discovery ensued, and the matter was ultimately tried over the course of five days on January 9, 2015, May 8, 2015, July 2, 2015, August 31, 2015, and October 15, 2015. The chancellor ruled from the bench on January 9, 2017, and entered the judgment of divorce on February 1, 2017.

         ¶4. On February 9, 2017, Tracy filed a motion to alter or amend the judgment, and Brent filed a response and counter-motion the following day. On October 2, 2017, the chancellor denied the post-trial motions. Aggrieved, Tracy now appeals to this Court, and Brent cross-appeals.
