Highlight

A district court has broad discretion in making a primary residential responsibility decision, but the court must consider all of the relevant statutory best-interest factors in reaching its decision.
Although a separate finding is not required for each statutory best-interest factor, the district court's findings must contain sufficient specificity to show the factual basis for the primary residential responsibility decision.
