Delgado v. Fisher

Practice Area: Child Custody

Date: November 19, 2010

Outcome: I was successful in winning the appeal and upholding the trial judge's decision for the mother to share equally in the transportation of the child for the father's parenting time.

The adversary appealed the trial judge's decision to require her client, who was the mother of the child, to share equally in the transportation responsibilities for my client's parenting time after the mother moved a little more than 50 miles away from my client. A prior consent order provided that if either party moved from their residence and increased the distance between the parties to more than 50 miles that shall be considered a change of circumstances for the parties to agree to a new location for the transfer of the child; and, if the parties were unable to agree the court would decide. The mother argued in the appeal that the trial judge abused his discretion in modifying the transportation responsibilities to require her to share equally in it.
