Mother presented issues of mental illness, physical illnesses, false allegations towards father, relocation and many more. Allegations from mother changed with the wind and her inconsistencies were highlighted to the Court at two temporary orders hearings and final evidentiary hearing. Father won sole custody, considerable child support arrearage award and current child support amount. Father was also awarded attorneys' fees and costs.
