Judge(s): GIBSON

This is an appeal of an order modifying a party's child support obligation. The trial court granted Appellee?s petition to downwardly modify her child support obligation based on a decrease in Appellee's income. Appellant objected, arguing that Appellee was voluntarily underemployed. The trial court found that Appellee was not underemployed and determined Appellee's income for the purpose of child support obligation by averaging the income she earned in each of her previous five positions. We affirm in part and vacate in part.
