January 2018 | No. A-17-018 (Neb. Ct. App. 2018)

Schurman v. Wilkins (Nebraska 2018)

Under the Nebraska Child Support Guidelines, child support abatements are discretionary. The father appealed the district court’s order that did not allow for an abatement in support during his summer parenting time. The appellate court found that the decision whether to abate is clearly left to the court. The district court considered evidence of the parties’ finances and support of the child and did not order an abatement. Under these circumstances, the appellate court found no abuse of discretion in not providing for an abatement of support.
