Tonda Sue Watkins v. Matt Daniel Watkins (Appellant)
Otoe County, Judge Randall Rehmeier
Attorneys: Julie E. Bear (for Appellant) --- Mindy Rush Chipman (Guardian ad Litem for minor children) --- no brief filed by Tonda Sue Watkins
Civil: Modification of decree
Proceedings below: The lower court denied Appellant’s request for modification of parenting time.
Issues: The trial court erred in (1) failing to find a material change in circumstances warranted a change in custody; (2) failing to find a change in custody would be in the children’s best interests; (3) failing to find that the minor children were at significant risk due to mother’s co-habitation with a convicted sex offender.
Cross-Appeal by GAL: The district court erred in finding the issue of parenting time was not before the court.
