Recent Tennessee Child Custody Law Court of Appeals Decisions



In The Matter of: Shayla H.
M2013-00567-COA-R3-JV 06/09/14
Authoring Judge: Senior Judge Don R. Ash
Trial Court Judge: Judge Alan Edward Calhoun
Mother and Father were divorced and Mother was designated as the primary residential parent of their child in 2003. Father filed a petition several years later seeking to have the designation of primary residential parent changed from Mother to himself. The trial court granted Father’s petition after determining Father had proved a material change in circumstances and it was in the child’s best interest for Father to become the primary residential parent. Mother appealed, and we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
