A-13-0625, Lynn S. Daugherty (Appellee/Cross-Appellant) v. Kim L. Daugherty (Appellant/Cross-Appellee)

Douglas County, District Court Judge Thomas A. Otepka

Attorney for Appellant:  Terrance A. Poppe, Benjamin D. Kramer (Morrow, Poppe, Watermeier & Lonowski, P.C.)

Attorney for Appellee:  Jodie Haferbier McGill (McGill Law, P.C., L.L.O.)

Domestic Action:  Modification of custody and child support

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The district court modified appellant’s parenting time and ordered such parenting time to be at the discretion of a therapist; denied appellee’s request to terminate the parental rights of appellant; reduced appellant’s child support obligation; found appellant to be in contempt of court for failing to pay certain child care expenses; and ordered appellant to pay a portion of appellee’s attorney fees.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  On appeal, appellant asserts that the district court erred in (1) granting a therapist the authority to decide his parenting time with the children; (2) finding him in contempt for his failure to pay the child care expenses; and (3) ordering him to pay a portion of appellee’s attorney fees. On cross-appeal, appellee asserts that the district court erred in (1) modifying appellant’s child support obligation; (2) failing to terminate appellant’s parental rights; and (3) failing to order that the attorney fee judgment entered in her favor should bear interest.
