Weber v. Weber

Court of Appeals of Mississippi

November 7, 2017

ZACHARY DAKOTA WEBER APPELLANT
v.
KRYSTAL BRYANT WEBER APPELLEE

          DATE OF JUDGMENT: 07/07/2016

         FOR REST COUNTY CHANCERY COURT HON. DEBORAH J. GAMBRELL

          ATTORNEY FOR APPELLANT: PHILLIP LLOYD LONDEREE.

          ATTORNEY FOR APPELLEE: HARRY RAY LANE.

          BEFORE LEE, C.J., WILSON AND WESTBROOKS, JJ.

          LEE, C.J.

         ¶1. This appeal concerns a custody dispute where the chancellor awarded the mother physical custody of the minor child. The father now appeals, arguing that the chancellor erred. Finding no error, we affirm.

         FACTS AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

         ¶2. Zachary Dakota Weber (Dakota) and Krystal Bryant Weber had a son together in December 2011. At the time of their son's birth, Dakota was eighteen years old and Krystal was seventeen years old, so they lived with Dakota's mother and stepfather in Petal, Mississippi. Dakota and Krystal married in April 2014, but separated approximately eight months later. On December 17, 2015, Dakota filed a complaint for divorce in the Forrest County Chancery Court, alleging several fault grounds and requesting custody of the couple's minor child. Ultimately, the parties withdrew their fault grounds and agreed to an irreconcilable-differences divorce. They entered into a property-settlement agreement, reserving the issues of custody, visitation, and child support for the chancellor's consideration.

         ¶3. After a trial, the chancellor conducted an Albright[1] analysis and awarded Krystal physical custody of the minor child, with both parties to have legal custody. The chancellor ordered Dakota to pay $300 per month in child support and set a visitation schedule.

         ¶4. In his appeal, Dakota argues that the chancellor erred in applying the Albright factors and in failing to award the parties joint custody.

         STANDARD OF REVIEW

         ¶5. This Court's standard of review regarding child custody is a limited one. C.W.L. v.R.A., 919 So. 2d 267, 270 (¶8) (Miss. Ct. App. 2005). This Court will not disturb a chancellor's findings "unless manifestly wrong or clearly erroneous." Sanderson v. Sanderson, 824 So. 2d 623, 625 (ΒΆ8) (Miss. 2002). However, "[a] chancellor's conclusions of law ...
