A-17-1195, State obo Honora A. v. Michael A.

Dodge County District Court, Judge Geoffrey C. Hall

Attorney for Appellant: Avis R. Andrews

Attorney for Appellee: Linsey Moran Bryant (Sidner Law)

Civil Action: Removal of Minor Child from Nebraska; Modification of Custody Order and Parenting Plan

Action Taken by the Trial Court: Michael A. and Ahkeshia H. (now known as Ahkeshia V.) are the parents of Honora A. In 2013, Michael and Ahkeshia stipulated to a custody order which awarded Ahkeshia primary physical custody of Honora and ordered Michael to pay child support. The parties were awarded joint legal custody. In March 2016, Michael filed to modify that order, requesting legal and physical custody of Honora due to Ahkeshia notifying him of her intent to remove Honora from Nebraska without a court order or hearing. Michael alleged that it was in Honora’s best interests to remain in Nebraska. After a trial, the district court found Ahkeshia failed to show removal was in Honora’s best interests; Michael was awarded sole physical custody. The court’s order set forth some provisions relevant to parenting time and responsibilities, but directed Michael’s counsel to prepare an amended parenting plan for approval. Ahkeshia was ordered to pay child support.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Ahkeshia claims, consolidated and restated, that the district court erred when it (1) denied her request to remove Honora from Nebraska to Idaho, (2) failed to adopt an appropriate amended parenting plan, and (3) failed to properly calculate Ahkeshia’s child support.
