Michael J. Stolla v. Megan Gould (mem. dec.)
Juvenile paternity. Affirms the Dearborn Circuit Court’s judgment modifying legal and physical custody over minor son, M.J.S., in favor of Megan Gould. Finds the trial court did not abuse its discretion when it overruled Michael J. Stolla’s objection to considering a modification of custody based only on Gould’s failure to file a modification petition. Also finds the trial court’s decision to modify the parties’ legal and physical custody over M.J.S. is well-supported by the record.
