Family Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC45317 - Prioleau v. Agosta (Application for custody of minor child; "In this contested custody action, the self-represented plaintiff, Keith Prioleau, appeals from the judgment of the trial court awarding him and the defendant, Nitza Agosta, joint legal and physical custody of their minor child, Kayla. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court (1) lacked jurisdiction to grant the defendant's motion to reconsider the court's original judgment or abused its discretion in doing so and (2) abused its discretion in allocating parenting time between the parties. We disagree and, therefore, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
