Case Summary

A-22-400, Juan Valdivia-De Los Rios (Appellant) v. Crystal Valdivia (Appellee)

District Court for Douglas County, Hon. James M. Masteller

Attorney for Appellant: Ryan D. Caldwell (Caldwell Law, LLC)

Attorney for Appellee: Benjamin M. Belmont and Wm. Oliver Jenkins (Brodkey, Cuddigan, Peebles, Belmont, & Line, LLP)  

Civil Action: Dissolution of Marriage

Action Taken by the Trial Court: Prior to trial, the court ordered Appellant to pay Appellee $10,000 per month in temporary spousal support. After trial, the district court entered a decree dissolving the parties’ marriage, which decree adopted a stipulated parenting plan, ordered Appellant to pay child support in the amount of $3,116 per month for the parties’ four children, and awarded Appellee alimony in the amount of $5,000 per month for 120 months. The decree also divided the marital estate, which necessitated a valuation of shares in “Chakana Copper Corporation” that Appellant admittedly dissipated from the marital estate.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Appellant assigns that the district court erred in (1) improperly valuing Chakana Copper Corporation shares, (2) failing to credit Appellant for marital debts, (3) dividing any future post-marital interest Appellant may have in a corporation, (3) inflating Appellant’s income for purposes of calculating child support, (5) denying Appellant’s motion to modify the temporary support order, (6) failing to credit Appellant for temporary spousal support arrears, and (7) imposing an unreasonable alimony award.
