In re Marriage of WeibertAnnotate this Case
Mother and Father divorced in 2012. The parties’ child, B.W., moved with Mother to Washington. Father later filed a motion for modification of the parenting plan requesting primary residential custody of B.W. The parties were able to reach an agreement as to a number of issues. After the district court ruled on the remaining issues, it ordered Father to pay Mother’s attorney’s fees incurred in defending against Father’s motion to amend the parenting plan. The Supreme Court affirmed the award of attorney’s fees and costs, holding that the district court did not abuse its discretion in ordering Father to pay Mother’s attorney’s fees.
