Ronald Stringer v. Alecia Stringer

Ronald Stringer v. Alecia Stringer
M2016-01314-COA-R3-CV

This post-divorce case concerns parental relocation.  Mother, the primary residential parent, sought to relocate to Texas, citing an employment offer.  Father objected to the relocation, arguing that the move had no reasonable purpose and that Mother’s real purpose for relocating is to be closer to her boyfriend. The trial court denied mother’s request to relocate based on mother’s perjury in the trial court’s presence and on the finding that the real purpose of mother’s proposed move is to be closer to her boyfriend. We reverse the trial court’s decision because we determine that father failed to carry his burden of proof.
