5 important upsides to joint custody

Over the years, joint custody has become more and more popular, and fathers' rights get recognized today in a way they simply haven't been before. Shared custody is better for parents who want to stay involved, and research has directly linked it to positive development for the kids.

Establish paternity to protect your rights as a father

Having a child can be the greatest experience of your life. However, what do you do if your daughter's mother is denying you your parental rights? Since the two of you are not married, will a Nebraska court acknowledge your rights as the father? What can you do if the mother did not list you as the father on the birth certificate?

Will your alcohol use hurt your chances at custody in divorce?

During a divorce, custody of minor children often becomes a contentious issue. Spouses may not agree on a parenting plan, child support levels or even how to split up holidays after the divorce. If you aren't able to agree to specific terms, the courts will generally decide. That means that you and your spouse will each be trying to convince the courts that you should have primary or even full custody of your children. Any misbehavior or past legal troubles could get dragged into court as a means of proving you shouldn't have custody of your children. That can include alcohol use.

Can you share custody, finances and a home after divorce?

You and your spouse know that divorce is imminent. You have issues that simply can not be reconciled, for whatever reason. Once there has been a breakdown of trust or love within the marital union, fixing things may prove impossible. Divorce doesn't necessarily mean that everything in your lives and the lives of your children will need to change. Many couples who divorce are finding that continuing to cohabitate after divorce can reduce some of the negative financial impacts of divorce as well as the emotional impact on the children. It is an increasingly popular option for divorcing couples with kids.

Important vocabulary for parents who want to leave Nebraska

If you're a single parent who wants to move to another state with your child, you must get approval from the court. In many cases, it may not be possible to gain permission for this kind of move, but sometimes, the court will approve of your request.
