Attorneys 1:

Lucy C. Wright, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Angela Michelle Newberry.

Attorneys 2:

Selma Cash Paty, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jeremy Mack Newberry.

Judge(s): BENNETT

Father filed a petition to modify the parties’ permanent parenting plan to make him the primary residential parent. The trial court granted Father’s petition, finding that there had been a material change of circumstances and that a change of primary residential parent was in the best interest of the two younger children. Because the trial court applied an erroneous legal standard in making its determination of a material change of circumstances, we vacate and remand.
