True v. Harmon

Justia Opinion Summary  

In 2011, Grandparents filed a petition to establish visitation rights with their grandson. The district court entered an order setting out a visitation schedule. In 2014, Grandparents filed a motion to modify the grandparent visitation order after Mother and Father moved to Kentucky. Mother opposed the motion to modify, and all parties requested attorney fees. The district court dismissed the matter for lack of jurisdiction and ordered Grandparents to pay Mother's reasonable attorney fees and costs. Grandparents appealed, arguing that the court erred in awarding attorney fees without providing them "an opportunity for hearing." The Supreme Court vacated the judgment and remanded because the record did not show that the parties were afforded the statutorily required opportunity to be heard on the issue of attorney fees.
