Hoard v. BeveridgeAnnotate this Case
In 2009, Brett Beveridge filed an action for divorce against his wife, Vivian Hoard. One child was born of the marriage, and the primary issue in the case involved custody of the parties’ minor child. Following a ten day trial, the trial court issued a final order granting the parties joint legal and physical custody with equal parenting time. Both Hoard and Beveridge filed cross-motions for attorney fees and expenses. In an October 2014 order, the trial court denied Hoard’s fee motion and granted Beveridge’s motion. Hoard subsequently filed an application for discretionary appeal which the Supreme Court granted pursuant to Rule 34 (4). Because the Court concluded the trial court made sufficient findings to sustain the full amount of the fee award under OCGA 19-6-2 (a), it affirmed.
