Grable v. Grable

In Grable v. Grable, 307 Ark. 410, 821 S.W.2d 16 (1991), the supreme court affirmed the chancellor's reduction of Mr. Grable's child-support obligation. Mrs. Grable contended that the chancellor should have denied this relief to Mr. Grable because his change in employment was voluntary. Mr. Grable testified at trial, however, that he had left his previous employment because the company was facing bankruptcy. The supreme court held that the chancellor had not abused his discretion in reducing Mr. Grable's child-support obligation.
