In Nebraska, there is a mandatory mediation process for custody and parenting time disputes that requires participation in a parenting class. After completion of the class, mediation will be required with a court appointed mediator to assist both parties in discussing their concerns. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement through mediation, unresolved issues regarding custody and parenting time will either be negotiated by attorneys or ultimately decided by the court.
At any time after the dissolution or paternity order, custody and parenting time agreements can be modified until such time as the child reaches the age of majority. The age of majority in Nebraska is 19. In order to change an existing order, a party has to demonstrate a material change of circumstance that has occurred that was not anticipated at the time of the entry of the original order.
Our firm has extensive experience with these matters and will ensure that your interests are protected.
Removal and Relocation
When one parent wants to move out of state with a child, that parent must first obtain permission from the court. If a move is approved, the parenting schedule will need to be modified. Child support may also be reviewed. These issues can be very contentious and complicated, making it very important to work with an experienced attorney.
Ultimately, the court will make a decision based on the purpose of the relocation and on the best interests of your children. Its decision will be based on what will maintain a stable lifestyle for the child. These battles can be long, emotionally draining and expensive. A skilled family law attorney can guide you through the process as efficiently as possible. Contact us today to discuss your custody needs with a lawyer.
