paternity and custody Archives

Single dads are more common than one might think

On an anecdotal level, it might seem that a single father raising his children is a rare sight indeed. However, while it is true that there are many more single mothers than fathers, dads doing their best to provide a home for their children is not as uncommon of a phenomenon as one might think.

Many young people still choosing to cohabit

While fewer and fewer people in the United States are getting married, the number of couples who choose to cohabit without getting married continues to grow. According to one organization, the number of people cohabiting across the country rose from about 14 million in 2007 to about 18 million in 2016, an increase of 29 percent. During this same period of time, among people between 18 and 34, the increase was about 24 percent, from 7.2 million to 8.9 million. The number of people between 35 and 49 who were cohabiting increased 20 percent, from 3.9 million to 4.7 million.

What exactly is shared custody?

Many parents in Omaha may either have what is commonly referred to as a shared custody arrangement or may at least know someone who does. However, dads who are new to the world of figuring out child custody and parenting time may not fully understand exactly what shared custody entails.

Acknowledgement of paternity in Nebraska

Like other states, Nebraska has a process by which a man and a woman who are unmarried can establish the man's paternity without having to go through the formal process of going to court and having genetic testing. Many couples favor such an approach because it saves times and, in reality, there is no dispute as to who the father of the child is.
