The Arkansas Supreme Court has been asked to review a decision of the Arkansas Court of Appeals which reversed the order of the Pulaski County Circuit Court modifying custody of a child. Dr. Michael Adams filed a petition for review of the Court of Appeals decision, citing what he claimed were inconsistencies in the decision and prior Supreme Court law. Adams had sought a modification of the custody order granting Margaret Nalley primary physical custody of their minor daughter, arguing that his move from Jonesboro to Little Rock meant that he could now exercise equal parenting time with the child. Following a trial in June 2020, the Pulaski County Circuit Court agreed with Adams and entered an order modifying custody. Nalley appealed to the Court of Appeals, saying that the Circuit Court had made a mistake of law by finding that Adams’ move to Little Rock, without more, was a sufficient change of circumstances to justify a modification of custody. The Court of Appeals agreed with Nalley and reversed the Circuit Court’s order. A petition for rehearing filed by Adams in the Court of Appeals was denied, and the parties are awaiting a ruling on Adams’ petition for review. Nalley was represented by Harrison Kemp of Mann & Kemp, PLLC. Adams was represented by Traci LaCerra and Lauren Hoover of LaCerra, Hoover, Dickson and Rogers, PLLC.
