I. The trial court's decision should be reversed because the court's conclusions are not supported by the evidence.

III. The trial court erred because denying the motion is not in the minor child's best interests.

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Did the Court properly rule upon the application for Change of Residence when Brandon failed to meet the Stout Hawkinson factors because he staged the move and had a history of frustrating contact between the mother and child.
