Holman v. Holman (Mississippi 2017)

No. 2016-CA-00313-COA (Miss. Ct. App. 2017)
April 2017

A parent must create a record to support the amount of arrears requested. The mother in this case failed to support her claim, and it was denied. The mother included medical bills in her arrears request, which was not appropriate. She also claimed the father had missed several child support payments, but did not question his testimony that he had made mortgage payments in lieu of child support during those months. Without more, the court found the record did not show that father had missed the child support payments and did not include the amount in the arrears calculation.
