Appeal From
Case No. 2013-DM-00716
South Central Judicial District, Burleigh County
Bruce A. Romanick
2020 ND 107942 N.W.2d 879
Oral Argument 12/5/2019

Highlight

Only judgments and decrees constituting a final judgment and specific orders enumerated by statute are appealable.

A two-step analysis is used to evaluate the finality of orders for review: the order or judgment must be appealable under N.D.C.C. § 28-27-02, and the requirements of N.D.R.Civ.P. 54(b), if applicable, must be met.

The district court has broad discretion in making contempt decisions, which will only be disturbed on appeal if the court abused its discretion.

The district court errs as a matter of law if it fails to comply with the child support guidelines in determining an obligor’s child support obligation.

An agreement purporting to relieve an obligor of any current or future duty of child support is void.
