Indiana Court of Appeals
Adam Craig Thomas v. Amy Thomas (mem. dec.)
20A-DR-900
Domestic relations. Affirms and reverses in part the Allen Superior Court’s decree of dissolution for Adam and Amy Thomas. Finds the trial court did not err in awarding Amy sole legal custody. Also finds the trial court did not err in the division of marital property, except for considering Adam’s Dupont distributions as both income for purposes of determining his child support payments as set forth in its provisional order and later property for purposes of dividing the marital estate, and remands for reconsideration of distributions from Lithotripsy of Northern Indiana LLC. Finally, finds the trial court abused its discretion by allowing Amy to offset the entirety of the au pair costs but otherwise did not err in its rulings on child support. Remands for the trial court to reconsider the costs related only to child care while Amy works.
