A-16-292, Angelina Leigh Spethman (Appellant) v. Thomas Edward Spethman

Douglas County, District Judge Kimberly M. Pankonin

Attorney for Appellant: Joh J. Puk (Woodke & Gibbons, P.C., L.L.O.)

Attorney for Appellee: Brent M. Kuhn (Brent Kuhn Law)

Civil Action: Child Custody and Parenting Time

Action Taken by Trial Court: The district court awarded Angelina and Thomas joint physical custody of the parties' five minor children, with alternating consecutive seven day parenting times in divorce decree.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Angelina assigns that the district court erred in (1) awarding Thomas joint physical custody over the five minor children, (2) excluding evidence and not allowing her to present evidence of sexual and intimate partner abuse during the marriage and sustaining the objections of Thomas' counsel on the same, and (3) abusing its discretion in the award of the parenting time, awarding alternating consecutive seven day periods of time.
