A-16-0150, Jason Boyer (Appellant) v. Lauren Boyer
Sarpy County, District Court Judge David Arterburn
Attorney for Appellant: Aimee S. Melton, A. Bree Robbins (Reagan, Melton & Delaney LLP)
Attorney for Appellee: Robin L. Binning (Binning & Plambeck)
Civil Action: Modification of Divorce Decree/Removal of Minor Child
Action Taken by Trial Court: The court granted Appellee’s petition to remove the child from Nebraska to Alaska, set parenting time for Appellant, and ordered that from the date of the decree until December 31, 2017, Appellee shall have final decision-making authority on all major decision making. On January 1, 2018, the parties shall resume joint legal custody over the child.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the district court err in finding a legitimate reason for removal? Did the district court err in finding it was in the child’s best interests to be removed from Nebraska? Did the district court err in finding the parties shall share joint legal custody commencing January 1, 2018? Did the district court err in receiving Exhibit 39, a letter to appellee regarding a job offer in Alaska, into evidence?
