Case Summary

S‑22-0693   Leslie I. Dvorak f/k/a Karas (Appellee) v. Brian A. Karas (Appellant)

Appeal from the District Court for Sarpy County, Judge Michael A. Smith

Attorneys:  Tracy L. Hightower-Henne & Susan Reff (Hightower Reff Law, LLC for Appellee) and Adam R. Little (Nebraska Legal Group for Appellant)

Civil: Dissolution of Marriage

Proceedings below:  The district court entered an order modifying a Decree of Dissolution of Marriage.  After the entry of the order modifying the Decree of Dissolution of Marriage, Appellee filed a Motion to Alter or Amend, which the trial court sustained, in part, and denied, in part.  Appellant subsequently filed a Motion to Alter or Amend, which the trial court denied.  On its own motion, the Supreme Court ordered this case to be transferred from the docket of the Court of Appeals to its docket.

Issues:  Appellant makes the following assignments of error:  1) The District Court abused its discretion when the court reduced the duration of the alimony award to 180 months instead of for the life of the parties; and 2) The District Court abused its discretion by improperly valuing and dividing the marital estate.
