Attorneys for Appellant:  Lindsay Belmont and Katherine Vogel (Koenig|Dunne, PC, LLO)

Attorney for Appellee: Edith T. Peebles (Brodkey, Cuddigan, Peebles, Belmont & Line, LLP)

Civil Action:  Modification of custody and support; Attorney fees

Action taken by the Trial Court:  The district court granted a motion for directed verdict, adopting appellee’s parenting plan and awarding joint physical custody of the minor child with an equal time sharing schedule. The trial court modified Appellee’s child support obligation and granted his request for attorney fees in the amount of $5,000.

Assignment of Error on Appeal:  Whether the district court abused its discretion in 1) failing to provide Appellant with an adequate opportunity to present her case; 2) finding that it is the minor child’s best interests that Appellee be awarded final decision-making authority; 3) finding a material change in circumstances occurred, warranting a modification of the parties’ parenting time schedule; 4) imposing on Appellant a limitation on reporting alleged acts of abuse by Appellee against the minor child without obtaining permission of the trial court; 5) its modified child support order; and 6) awarding attorney fees.
