Parents seeking legal protections as surrogacy soars

Surrogacy in the United States is soaring of late. In 2004, there were 738 babies born via surrogacy in the country. In 2015, that number jumped to a whopping 2,807. The majority of the increase is attributed to the advent of gay marriage. Some women who serve as surrogates are paid up to $30,000 to carry the baby that is created via the egg and sperm of others.

Can you share custody, finances and a home after divorce?

You and your spouse know that divorce is imminent. You have issues that simply can not be reconciled, for whatever reason. Once there has been a breakdown of trust or love within the marital union, fixing things may prove impossible. Divorce doesn't necessarily mean that everything in your lives and the lives of your children will need to change. Many couples who divorce are finding that continuing to cohabitate after divorce can reduce some of the negative financial impacts of divorce as well as the emotional impact on the children. It is an increasingly popular option for divorcing couples with kids.

What rights do fathers have before birth?

Most fathers don't think about the rights they have over their child before it's born. However, decisions made pre-birth can have a substantial effect on the life of your baby. As such, some fathers may want to play a part in decisions that apply to medical testing, medical procedures, and other issues during pregnancy. Disagreements can arise over these decisions, and it's not unheard of for a father to try to assert his opinions in court.

Can I claim paternity if I didn't know I had a child?

When a father isn't married, he may have to jump through some legal red tape to establish himself as the legal father of his child. If the biological mother, for example, tries to claim that someone else is the father, the biological father may have trouble claiming his parental rights. If the father is not aware of his status and not aware of the child until after the child has been born, it can present even more challenges.

Domestic violence restraining orders in Nebraska

The most difficult part of any long-term domestic violence scenario in Nebraska is not the difficulty in putting it to a stop. It's the difficulty in empowering victims to come forward and say "enough is enough." Nebraska has numerous laws that protect victims of domestic violence. Victims can get restraining orders, remove their children from the abuser and even bring their pets with them if they have to leave their homes.
