Ex parte Duerr.Annotate this Case
The father Andrew Duerr and mother Anne Marie Duerr were married in 1989, and had four children. The parties divorced in 2003. In October 2011, the father filed a petition to terminate alimony and to modify child support and visitation. In April 2013, the mother filed an answer and a counterclaim in which she sought postminority educational support for N.D., a child of the marriage, who was attending the Cleveland Institute of Music. After conducting a hearing, the trial court, among other things, ordered the father to pay up to $12,000 per semester in postminority support for N.D.'s tuition. The father appealed, arguing the decision of the Court of Civil Appeals affirming the trial court's order awarding postminority educational support for N.D. conflicted with "Ex parte Christopher," (145 So. 3d 60 (Ala. 2013)). After review, the Supreme Court agreed, reversed and remanded for further proceedings.
