Case Summary

A-14-0665, Jason L. Sellers (Appellant) v. Stephanie Sellers and State of Nebraska

District Court for Lincoln County, District Judge Richard Birch

Attorney for Appellant: Monelle M. Nichols

Attorneys for Appellee (State): Claudine K. Thorne & Chawnta Durham (Lincoln County Attorney's Office)

Civil Action: Child support modification

Action taken by the Trial Court: The trial court found a material change in circumstances justifying an increase in Jason's child support obligation. The court modified Justin's obligation retroactive to the start of the month after he was served.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the trial court err in calculating child support with respect to the amount used as a deduction for regular support for other children? Did the trial court err in finding insufficient evidence to rebut the strict application of the Nebraska Child Support Guidelines and/or failing to allow a deviation for Jason's medical expenses? Did the trial court err in failing to recognize and apply the correct basic subsistence limitation in calculating child support? Did the trial court err in entering a child support order in contradiction of public policy and legislative intent that would require Jason to seek public assistance? Did the trial court err in ordering the payment of retroactive support? Did the trial court err in allowing evidence of the reason for Jason's previous incarceration? Did the trial court err in ordering Jason to pay for 63-percent of the unreimbursed healthcare costs? Did the trial court err in denying Jason's application to proceed in forma pauperis?
