LISA ALFARO MUNDAY v. WILLIAM MARK MUNDAY Court:TCA Attorneys: Mary Evars-Goan, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Lisa Alfaro Munday. Gregory S. McMillan and Charles W. Swanson, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, William Mark Munday. Judge: SUSANO First Paragraph: In this post-divorce proceeding, the trial court designated William Mark Munday ("Father") as the primary residential custodian of two of the parties' children. He had been awarded primary residential custody of the parties' third child at an earlier time. Lisa Alfaro Munday ("Mother") appeals, arguing (1) that the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to modify the custodial arrangement and (2) that there had not been a material change of circumstances to warrant a change in custody. We affirm. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCA/MundayLA.wpd
