A previous post on this blog talked about harassment protection orders in Nebraska and what Omaha men can do if they are served with such an order. As mentioned in that previous post, a harassment protection order is just one of the three types of protection orders a Douglas County court may issue, either with, or, under certain circumstances, even without notice.
Previous posts on this blog have overviewed the different types of protection orders residents of Nebraska can obtain from their local courts, including the courts here in Omaha and the rest of Douglas County.
As a father, you know that the time you spend with your child is the most precious time that you have. This can make sharing custody of your child difficult, especially if their other parent does not respect your parenting time. It is certainly normal for most parents to experience some trouble adjusting to sharing custody, so don't be surprised if you hit some bumps in the road, particularly in the first several months.
Several previous posts on this blog talked about mistakes men commonly make during the course of a divorce or legal separation, and, to some extent, other family law matters.
Many fathers and soon-to-be fathers have jobs that, less face it, they do because it brings in a paycheck. Many men in Omaha and the other communities of Eastern Nebraska probably would like at some point to change professions and do something they truly find fulfilling, even if it means taking a significant pay cut.
Many children are born to unmarried parents. While a mother is automatically considered the parent of her child through giving birth, Nebraska laws make it harder for unmarried fathers to assert their rights. Although it doesn't take much more than a DNA test to prove that you are the biological father, your unmarried status will still prevent you from participating in many aspects of your child's life.
Like other marital property, the home where an Omaha couple lived during their marriage will have to be divided as part of a Nebraska divorce or legal separation.
