What should be included in a parenting plan?

Attempting to create a viable parenting plan for the years following a divorce may seem like a monumental task. While it can be stressful when viewed as a whole, it becomes easily managed when broken down into smaller areas of consideration. In this post, we give you the basic necessities of what a great parenting plan should include.

What happens to your house and cabin in a Nebraska divorce?

Real estate is one form of investment that most people consider infallible. While certain areas may experience fluctuations in price, overall, real estate tends to trend upward. Local property values improve with a stronger economy, but population increases also increase demand for housing and land. The longer you hold on to a piece of real estate, the higher the potential increase in value.

Fighting gender bias in a judicial decision

Even today, when one would think gender bias no longer exists, it still runs rampant in our U.S. court systems. Numerous studies have shown that even more so than lay people, judges tend to default to implicit bias when making decisions regarding matters in which there are traditional gender roles. Cases such as custody matters, domestic violence, and sexual assaults all fit the bill.

Military members face consequences for cheating

For most divorces in Nebraska, infidelity isn't a major issue. Given that most couples file no-fault divorces and that the Nebraska family courts cannot consider marital misconduct when dividing your assets, adultery has next to no impact on the average divorce besides perhaps being the reason for someone to file. Only in extreme cases will infidelity of any sort impact how the courts rule in a civilian divorce.

Can I lose custody over a false domestic violence allegation?

Finally, third-degree domestic assault has taken place when bodily harm occurs that is not serious in nature, or one party is threatening the other with such harm. Both first and second degree charges are considered felonies. Third degree in the first instance is a misdemeanor, but becomes a felony when it occurs subsequent times.

High-profile split shows that men should be aware of gray divorce

The divorce of a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, arguably the most important law enforcement officer in the country and perhaps even the world, and his wife of over 60 years has put renewed focus on the phenomenon of gray divorce.
