Interest of S.R.L. - No. 20120282
Nikki LaFromboise appeals from a district court judgment following a bench trial awarding joint residential responsibility of the child S.R.L. to LaFramboise and Russell Niffenegger.
LaFromboise and Niffenegger are the parents of the child born in 2010. The parties dated briefly but neither married nor lived together. The parties remained in separate homes following the child's birth. LaFromboise initiated a child support action. Subsequently, Niffenegger began an action seeking primary residential responsibility. The district court found both parties to be fit parents and concluded joint residential responsibility of the child was in the child's best interest.
On appeal, LaFromboise argues the district court's conclusion that joint residential responsibility was in the child's best interest was clearly erroneous and seeks primary residential responsibility of the child.
