Ackerman v. Ott

Father and Mother divorced several years ago, and Father was awarded primary custody of the parties’ minor child. Mother was ordered to pay child support of $272 per month. Mother recently filed a petition to modify custody and child support. The proper amount of Mother’s child support payments was tried to the district court, which modified the child support obligation of Mother to $419 per month. Mother appealed, arguing that the district court improperly determined Father’s income, which caused the court to miscalculate her child support obligation. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court acted within its discretion in computing Father’s monthly net income as it did for child support purposes. View "Ackerman v.
