Case Summary

A-14-1055, Jennae Marie Kester v. Jeremy Paul Kester (Appellant)

Antelope County, District Court Judge Mark Johnson

Attorney for Appellant: Jane F. Langan (Rembolt Ludtke LLP)

Attorney for Appellee: Jason S. Doele, Tracey L. Buettner (Stratton, DeLay, Doele, Carlson & Buettner, PC, LLO) and Martin V. Klein (Carney Law, P.C.)

Civil Action: Dissolution of Marriage; Custody

Action Taken by Trial Court: The court dissolved the marriage and divided the marital estate. The court awarded appellant custody of the parties two older children and awarded appellee custody of the parties two younger children. Appellant was ordered to pay child support and alimony and each party was awarded two dependency exemptions.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the trial court err in failing to award appellant custody of all four children; in giving weight to the testimony of the guardian ad litem; in calculating appellant's income and child support obligation; in failing to award appellant all the dependency exemptions; and in valuing and dividing the marital estate, particularly by using an improper value for crop inventory and refusing to enforce a stipulation?
