In re Guardianship of Issaabela R.

Court of Appeals of Nebraska

June 18, 2019

In re Guardianship of Issaabela R.,
v.
Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, appellee. A MINOR CHILD. Cami S., Guardian, appellant,

         1. Guardians and Conservators: Appeal and Error. Appeals of matters arising under the Nebraska Probate Code are reviewed for error on the record.

         2. Judgments: Appeal and Error. When reviewing a judgment for errors appearing on the record, the inquiry is whether the decision conforms to the law, is supported by competent evidence, and is neither arbitrary, capricious, nor unreasonable.

         3. Constitutional Law: Parent and Child: Public Policy. Where a parent's constitutionally protected relationship with a child is not at issue, both public policy and the Nebraska statutes require the case to be determined by reference to the paramount concern in child custody disputes-the best interests of the child.

         4. Pleadings: Proof. Pleadings alone are not proof but mere allegations of what the parties expect the evidence to show.

         5. Pleadings: Trial: Evidence. Pleadings and their attachments which are not properly admitted into evidence cannot be considered by the trial court.

         6. Evidence: Records: Appeal and Error. A bill of exceptions is the only vehicle for bringing evidence before an appellate court; evidence which is not made a part of the bill of exceptions may not be considered.

          Appeal from the County Court for Saunders County: C. Jo Petersen, Judge. Reversed and remanded for further proceedings.

         [27 Neb.App. 354] Jennifer D. Joakim for appellant.

          No appearance for appellee.

          Riedmann, Arterburn, and Welch, Judges.

          Riedmann, Judge.
