Rowden v. RowdenAnnotate this Case
Wife and Husband were divorced and in the Final Decree, Wife was awarded primary physical custody of the parties' two minor children, and was also awarded child support. Husband appealed, contending that these rulings were in error. The court held that there was evidence to support the trial court's conclusion that Wife should be awarded primary physical custody of the parties' children and therefore, the trial court did not abuse its discretion. The court also held that the trial court did not err in determining the child support obligation where the trial court properly ascertained the reasons for Wife's occupational choices and the reasonableness of these choices. The court further held that Husband's argument that the trial court abused its discretion by failing to abate his child support obligation or award him child support during summer visitation was without merit.
