Case Summary

S-14-0591 Dale Coufal (Appellant) v. Lavon Coufal

Buffalo County District Court, Judge William T. Wright

Attorneys: Kent A. Schroeder (Ross, Schroeder & George, LLC)(Appellant) --- Gregory G. Jensen

Civil: Dissolution; distribution of assets

Proceedings below: The district court denied Appellant's motion for new trial or in the alternative to amend or alter dissolution decree.

Issues: Whether the district court abused its discretion in finding that the non-marital portion of Appellant's Nebraska Retirement Account was only what its principal balance was at the time of the marriage, i.e. $76,271.45, which then made the increased statutory guaranteed interest rate of return of $43,739.37, on the marital portion of the retirement account a marital asset.
