Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Angelique P. Kane (on brief) and Brody Kane (at oral argument), Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellant, David B.

Attorneys 2:

Michael R. Giaimo and Randy S. Chaffin, Cookeville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Angela W.

Judge(s): MCBRAYER

This is an appeal from the trial court?s denial of Father?s petition to modify custody. Following a one-day trial, the court found that Father had failed to demonstrate a material change in circumstance as necessary for either a change in primary residential parent or parenting time. Because we find that the evidence preponderates against the trial court?s finding of no material change in circumstance for purposes of modification of residential parenting time, we vacate and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
