David B. Lyons, Nashville, TN for Respondent/Appellee E.Y.

Judge(s): KIRBY

This appeal involves the modification of a parenting arrangement. After many years without parenting time, the mother asked the juvenile court to designate her as the primary residential parent for the parties’ daughter. The juvenile court held domestic violence in the father’s home constituted a material change in circumstances. However, the juvenile court concluded that, despite the incidents of domestic violence, it was in the daughter’s best interest for the father to remain as the primary residential parent. The juvenile court awarded the mother alternate residential parenting time. The mother appeals, raising numerous issues. We affirm.
