Head Comment: CORRECTION: The revised opinion contains a correction on p. 8. This revision replaces $1,404 with $972 and deletes the phrase "the cost of a nanny." The revised sentence states, "For example, in 2010, Mother's award of child support was based upon work-related child care expenses of $972 per month."

Judge(s): BENNETT

In this juvenile court proceeding, Father objects to a number of decisions made by the trial court concerning the parenting plan for the parties? child. We have determined that the trial court erred in its determinations regarding parenting time and child support. As to the latter, the trial court failed to consider Father?s argument that Mother was underemployed, abused its discretion in its treatment of Mother?s work-related child care expenses, and failed to properly calculate Father?s income. We find no merit in any of the other issues raised by Father.
