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.
