A-20-919,  Peck (Appellant) v. Peck

Dodge County, District Court Judge Geoffrey Hall

Attorney for Appellant:  Timothy M. Schulz (Yost, Lamme, Hillis, Mitchell, Schulz, Hartmann & Wilson, P.C.)

Attorney for Appellee:  Avis R. Andrews (Andrews Law Firm)

Civil Action:  Modification of Dissolution Decree

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The district court found that a material change of circumstances existed to modify the parties’ dissolution decree. The court divided final decision making authority between the parties, expanded the appellee’s parenting time and ordered the appellant not to move the children from Sarpy County or Cass County without permission of the court or mutual agreement of the parties; calculated child support and awarded the appellee an abatement; and awarded the appellee $500 in attorney fees.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: The appellant assigns as error that the district court abused its discretion in: (1) finding that there was a material change in circumstances warranting a modification of the January 2019 decree to divide final decision making authority, expanding appellee’s parenting time, and ordering appellant not to move the children from Sarpy County or Cass County without permission of the court or mutual agreement of the parties; (2) calculating child support, and awarding an abatement due to the expansion of the Justin’s parenting time; and (3) awarding Justin $500 in attorney fees.
