Helping Clients With Divorce, Custody, and Support
In Nebraska, divorce is considered no-fault, which means you file on the basis of irreconcilable differences. Marital property is generally divided equally — this includes not only your house, cars, and furniture, but also your financial accounts, retirement plans, and debt.
Divorce, while an emotional process, does not have to be adversarial. We can help you negotiate what you will receive in your half of the marital property. We also can help you come to an agreement on parenting time (child custody) and create a parenting plan.
While child support is based on statutory guidelines in Nebraska, there are some deviations from the standards. We can help you determine if these exceptions apply to your situation and what amount of child support you can expect to pay or receive.
Representing Clients in All Family Law Matters
In addition to our extensive divorce and child custody practice, we also help clients resolve other family law concerns, including:
- Juvenile matters. We represent juvenile offenders in juvenile court, defending them against charges of minor in possession, vandalism, and other juvenile offenses. We also defend parents who have had actions for child abuse and neglect brought against them in juvenile court.
- Paternity. We help with paternity determinations and any custody or support issues in conjunction with those paternity matters.
- Adoption and guardianship. We help with stepparent adoptions and relative guardianships.
- Domestic violence. We can help file protection orders and represent you if you’ve had a restraining order filed against you.
