A-12-1168, Bruce Vesper (Appellant) v. Dawn Francis

Saunders County, District Court Judge Mary C. Gilbride

Attorney for Appellant:  Shane J. Placek (Sidner, Svodoba, Schilke, Thomsen, Holtorf, Boggy Nick & Placek)

Attorney for Appellee:  Christine A. Stolarskyj (Legal Aid of Nebraska)

Civil Action:  Paternity and Child Custody

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The trial court found Vesper to be the father of the minor child and awarded Francis full legal and physical custody, subject to Vesper’s reasonable right of visitation.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  Did the trial court err in finding it was in the minor child’s best interests to award custody to the mother? Did the court give appropriate consideration to Neb. Rev. Stat. 43-2932(1)(a)(iv) when determining which parent should have custody of the minor child?
