“It is not uncommon for an individual such as Brian to assert that because DNA testing excludes him as the biological father of a child, his court‑ordered child support obligation should be reduced or terminated. However, nothing in our case law, the Nebraska statutes, or the Nebraska Child Support Guidelines indicates that genetic testing excluding a legal father as the biological father of a child is sufficient evidence standing alone to establish a material change in circumstances warranting the modification or termination of child support which has previously been ordered in an existing paternity and child support judgment.”
