Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Sherif Guindi, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Angela G. Baker

Attorneys 2:

R. Stephen Merritt, Maryville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Kenley G. Wald.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

This is an appeal from the trial court’s final order modifying a custody arrangement that designated Mother as the primary residential parent and awarded Father limited visitation. Father filed a petition to modify, claiming that a material change in circumstances necessitated a change in the parenting plan. Following a hearing, the trial court designated Father as the primary residential parent, awarded the Parents equal time with the Children, and modified Father’s child support obligation. Mother appeals. We affirm the trial court’s custody determination but reverse its child support determination. The case is remanded for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
