Box Raleigh, North Carolina e-mail: notary sosnc. Version: Susan Gray , Register of Deeds P. All other N. The chancellor concluded that no evidence had been presented as to a material change in circumstances adverse to the interest of the children, warranting a modification of child custody. However, the chancellor left the record open to allow the parties an opportunity to depose a psychologist, appointed by the court to evaluate the children's level of anxiety.
In the four months following the hearing, Jon failed to take the psychologist's deposition.
Subsequently, on July 5, , the chancellor closed the record. On August 18, , the chancellor issued a written opinion, in which he found that each party owed the other mutually off-setting amounts, and denied either party a money judgment against the other. Additionally, the chancellor found Bobby's termination from his job to be a material change in circumstances, placing the parties on equal economic footing, and justifying a modification of his child support obligations, so that child support would no longer be required.
Further, the chancellor ordered that all future medical insurance and additional medical expenses be divided equally between the parties. Finally, neither Bobby nor Jon was found in contempt. Aggrieved by the judgment of the chancery court, Jon appeals, raising the following issues:. The scope of review in domestic relations matters is strictly limited. Bryant v.
Bryant, So. Williams, So. Particularly in the areas of divorce, alimony and child support, this Court is required to uphold the findings of fact made by a chancellor that are supported by substantial evidence and are neither arbitrary nor capricious.

Before rendering his opinion in the case sub-judice, the chancellor heard the testimony of the parties and reviewed the transcript and pleadings from the original divorce, which included an analysis of the applicable factors under Albright v. Albright, So. The chancellor then rendered his opinion recognizing the strained relationship between the parties.
However, the chancellor noted that by Jon's own admission, this strained condition existed at the time of the original judgment of divorce. Accordingly, the chancellor determined that Jon had failed to present any evidence showing a material change adverse to the children since the original judgment, and that it remained in the best interest of the children to continue under the original joint custody order.

On appeal, Jon argues that she and Bobby never agreed to an award of joint custody, and under Morris v. Morris, So. Crider, So.
However, Jon concedes in her own brief, that Morris has been overturned. Since Albright, our supreme court has been unwavering in its conviction that the polestar consideration when determining child custody is the best interest of the child, and where the chancellor determines that the best interests of the child are served by joint custody, such may be ordered with or without the agreement of the parties.
