Deyle v. Deyle

North Dakota Supreme Court
825 N.W.2d 245 (2012)


Christina Deyle (plaintiff) and Eric Deyle (defendant) were married with two children. The couple separated, and Christina was the children’s primary caretaker during the separation. Eric moved out while Christina remained in the marital home. When Eric stopped making mortgage payments, the home went into foreclosure and Christina moved with the children into her parents’ house. Christina planned to go back to school to become a dental hygienist and then search for a job as a dental hygienist. Christina petitioned for divorce, and the district court granted Eric primary residential responsibility of the children. The district court found that Christina would need to move two or three times in the near future and that such upheaval would not be in the best interests of the children. Christina appealed.
