Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:

II. Whether the trial court erred in misapplying the law by weighing the conflicting evidence in the affidavits.
III. Whether the trial court erred in finding that a mature child's preference to live with one parent does not constitute a material change of circumstances sufficient to raise a prima facie case for change of custody, entitling the movant to an evidentiary hearing.
