Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jacqueline Strong Moss, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tabitha O.

Attorneys 2:

Robert B. Pyle, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jonathan B.

Judge(s): SWINEY

This appeal concerns a change of child custody. Jonathan B. (“Father”) filed a petition against Tabitha O. (“Mother”) in the Juvenile Court for Hamilton County (“the Juvenile Court”) seeking to become the primary residential parent of the parties’ minor child, Wyatt B. (“the Child”). After a trial, the Juvenile Court found a material change in circumstance sufficient to modify custody and that changing the Child’s primary residential parent from Mother to Father was in the Child’s best interest. Mother appeals. We affirm the judgment of the Juvenile Court.
