MIA W. RANDLE
SYLVESTER J. RANDLE
APPEAL FROM THE TWENTY-NINTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT PARISH
OF ST. CHARLES, STATE OF LOUISIANA NO. 83, 254, DIVISION
"D" HONORABLE M. LAUREN LEMMON, JUDGE PRESIDING
COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF/APPELLANT, MIA W. RANDLE Alan G.
Bouterie Alan G. Bouterie, Jr.
Melanie M. Licciardi COUNSEL FOR DEFENDANT/APPELLEE,
SYLVESTER J. RANDLE Maria M. Chaisson
composed of Judges Susan M. Chehardy, Fredericka Homberg
Wicker, and Hans J. Liljeberg
Mia Randle, seeks review of the trial court's December
18, 2017 judgment granting Sylvester Randle interim spousal
support in the amount of $1, 500.00 per month and child
support in the amount of $1, 793.31 per month with Ms. Randle
owing to Mr. Randle a retroactive amount of $5, 750.00 in
interim spousal support and $8, 966.55 in child support. For
the following reasons, we affirm the trial court's
Randle and Ms. Randle were married on January 20, 2006, in
Hinds County, Mississippi. They moved to Louisiana in 2013.
From their union, three children were born, all of whom are
currently under the age of majority. On July 19, 2017, Ms.
Randle filed a Petition for Divorce Pursuant to LSA-C.C.
Art. 102, Rule for Custody, Request for Use of Immoveable and
Moveable Property and Request for Expedited Hearing in
the Twenty-Ninth Judicial District Court. On July 31, 2017,
Mr. Randle filed a Motion on Incidental Matters
which included a request for child support and interim
periodic spousal support. On August 4, 2017, the trial court
entered an Interim Consent Judgment addressing the
issues of health insurance, occupancy of the family home, use
of the family computer, distribution of the children's
clothing, vehicle maintenance, child custody, and
injunctions. On December 12, 2017, the trial court entered a
subsequent Consent Judgment signed by Mr. and Ms.
Randle; thus, the only matters addressed by the
trial court on December 12, 2017, were Mr. Randle's
requests for child support and interim spousal support.
December 18, 2017, the trial court, in a Judgment
Regarding Interim Spousal Support and Child Support,
ordered Ms. Randle to pay Mr. Randle $1, 150.00 per month in
interim spousal support "retroactive to July 27,
2017," the date Ms. Randle filed her petition for
divorce. The trial court ordered Ms. Randle to pay the
retroactive amount of $6, 900.00 at the rate of $1, 500.00
per month. Ms. Randle was also ordered to pay Mr. Randle $1,
793.31 per month in child support, "retroactive to July
27, 2017," with a retroactive amount of $10, 759.86 paid
at the rate of $1, 500.00 per month.
March 28, 2018, the trial court issued Written Reasons
for Judgment and Amendment to Correct Calculation of
Error whereby the court corrected a
calculation error in assigning the retroactive amount Ms.
Randle was to pay Mr. Randle in both child support and
interim spousal support.[ ...
