As a divorced father, you know how difficult it can be to maintain a strong relationship with your children. This is even more so the case if you don't have physical custody.
Some men in Omaha who have gone through a custody or parenting time matter in family law court or who are contemplating having to do so may have heard of the Nebraska Parenting Act. This law governs all sorts of custody and parenting time proceedings and is relatively unique when compared with the laws of other states.
A previous post on this blog talked about how Omaha men can protect their business assets via a premarital agreement. Indeed, in some cases, one's business partners can even insist that a man execute a premarital agreement before tying the knot just to make sure the enterprise is protected from the fallout of a high-asset divorce.
Sadly, many children grow up without both of their biological parents. Some of these children will have step-parents or adoptive parents who care for them, and others will only have one parent with whom they have a strong relationship. Children are resilient, and they can thrive in many different household situations. However, being in a loving environment that is free from violence, abuse and neglect is one of the most important factors in a child's upbringing.
As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, the presence of fathers in their children's lives has a number of important benefits for both the dads and their kids. This is one reason why our law firm dedicates its time and attention to helping men establish and protect their fathers' rights to see their children regularly and have a role in making important decisions on their behalf.
Fighting for your rights as a father can feel like an uphill battle, especially if your child's other parent fights against you. The time that you spend with your child is an irreplaceable treasure, and you should always protect it carefully. For many parents, this begins with the parenting agreement.
A previous post on this blog talked about the right of first refusal and its importance to many Nebraska fathers. Basically, in Nebraska, this right to provide childcare to one's own children needs to be protected in a man's court-ordered parenting plan. Otherwise, it can be very hard to assert successfully.
