A-21-0467, Justin Winkler (Appellant) v. Crystal Winkler, now known as Crystal Werner, (Appellee)

Phelps County District Court, Judge Stephen R. Illingworth

Attorney for Appellant: Jaclyn Daake (Duncan, Walker, Schenker & Daake, P.C., L.L.O.)

Attorney for Appellee: Nicole Mailahn and Allison Seiler (Jacobsen, Orr, Lindstrom & Holbrook, P.C., L.L.O.)

Civil Action: Modification of Dissolution Decree

Action Taken by District Court: After hearing, the court denied Appellant’s complaint to modify custody, parenting time, and child support on the grounds that Appellant failed to prove a material change in circumstances justifying the requested modification. The court also granted Appellee’s counterclaim for an upward modification of child support and attorney fees.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Appellant assigns that the district court erred in (1) finding that Appellant failed to prove a material change in circumstances justifying modification of physical custody, (2) finding that Appellee proved a material change of circumstances justifying an upward modification of child support, and (3) awarding Appellee a portion of her attorney fees.
