To follow up on this blog's previous overview of how alimony works in Nebraska, dads in the Omaha area may want to think about whether it is to their advantage to come to an agreement about alimony quickly.
Like other states, Nebraska allows its courts to award what are called alimony payments to either spouse following a divorce.
There is an old stereotype about divorced dads and their children. The trend of the weekend dad, taking their kids to breakfast on Saturday morning and spending short weekends together. Movies like “Mrs. Doubtfire” reinforce the idea of distant fathers who do not get to spend enough time with their children. But is this stereotype still true?
Many parents in Omaha may either have what is commonly referred to as a shared custody arrangement or may at least know someone who does. However, dads who are new to the world of figuring out child custody and parenting time may not fully understand exactly what shared custody entails.
In cases involving divorce or, for that matter, other types of separation, especially when the couple splitting has a lot of assets, there is always a concern that one of them will try to conceal wealth outside the reach of the other party. The plan in this case would be to wait until a more convenient time when they can access the money for themselves without having to share it.
Co-parenting with a former spouse can be a challenging aspect of your life after divorce. Particularly in cases where a former couple does not easily maintain civil discourse, it can be difficult for fathers and mothers to have a cooperative relationship as co-parents. Fortunately, there are tools and resources available for all parents in Nebraska who need some assistance with their strained co-parenting dynamic.
