McCullough v. McCullough (Nebraska 2018)

A parent must make child support payments even if a modification is pending. The father appealed a district court order finding him in contempt for failure to pay child support. He argued that he had filed to modify the support order and that the new order might affect the amount of support owed. The Supreme Court disagreed. It found that a decree of dissolution remains in effect until officially modified. A pending modification does not excuse nonpayment of the child support obligation.
