Tips for being a successful single father

Being a single parent is tough, whether you are a mother or father. You'll never be fully prepared for the challenges that single parenthood brings, and, likely, it's not how you ever envisioned bringing up your child. However, if you are a single parent, you'll need to face up to the reality of this situation and try to do what is best for your child.

Child custody in Nebraska doesn't default to mothers

There was a time in which divorces involving children almost always went one way. Mothers almost invariably got sole custody of children, with the social belief that women were the only natural nurturers and caregivers of young people. Recent studies have shown that routine and caring parents who set good expectations have better adjusted children.

Keeping calm during a divorce is vital

If a person married someone, there was love of some kind. It may have been a self-interested love or even a misguided love, but love is a strong and positive emotion. Even when it is turned into hate, the intensity remains the same. But most people don't want to hurt anyone, least of all someone they loved.

Proving paternity is more than saying you're the father

Nebraska allows men who believe they may be the unrecognized father of a child to assert a right for a paternity test. A marital connection to the mother at birth may be recognized as legal paternity, but it can be overturned if a person shows biological evidence of fatherhood.

Even being a stay-at-home father may not guarantee your rights

The inherent bias that you often find in the divorce court system has roots in the fact that mothers used to stay home and raise children in most households, while men used to go to work and provide for their families. A lot of courts still prefer to give mothers custody of the children, sometimes ignoring fathers' rights entirely.

How can someone fight a domestic protection order?

Domestic protection orders serve an important purpose. When one person in a relationship is worried about his or her safety, they're really necessary. But these orders often require people to change their lifestyles to make sure the order is respected. When a motion like this results in a change to residence or child custody, a person may feel the need to dispute it.
