Summary: Father and mother never wed, but a child was born. Initially mother had sole custody, father had standard visitation. Events changed over the next couple of years and father retained my services. An action was brought to have custody place with father. At trial, the Court awarded custody to father. Mother objected and appealed the matter. Matter was affirmed on appeal with the Court of Appeals found (as the trial court found) that father was more stable than mother, had kept a calendar of times with the mother, had paid the child support ordered, and other factors from trial and affirmed the custody being place with father.
