State on behalf of AE v. Buckhalter (Nebraska 2007)

A father, who receives proper notice of an action and fails to answer or appear at an initial hearing for paternity, is not entitled to further notice of hearings; the State’s decision not to present evidence of an unverified genetic test did not violate the NCP’s due process and was not sufficient to set aside a default order; and the use of income verification forms is appropriate to determine income if the NCP fails to provide more detailed information.  The parent is in the best place to provide income information, so the use of income verification forms from an employer to determine income is appropriate when the parent did not provide any other documents.
