State ex. rel. Smith v. Thorne (Tennessee 2017)

No. M2016-01966-COA-R3-JV (Tenn. Ct. App. 2017)
May 2017

An appeal of a child support order set in juvenile court must be taken to the circuit court. In this case, the State appealed an order dismissing arrears to the Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals found it did not have subject matter jurisdiction over the appeal because the order originated from a dependency action in juvenile court.
