You mentioned that you do not have access to marital income to retain counsel - please note that under the circumstances you described, you may be able to have your spouse required to pay some temporary attorney fees. You should consult with an attorney about that option so that you are not without counsel under these circumstances. You really do need to speak with an attorney because your facts here raise issues of spousal support and jurisdiction . Even if your spouse will keep the home and vehicle, he will need to pay you your share of the equity in these items. An experienced divorce attorney can help you make sure the outcome is fair to all of you, including your daughter. Best wishes to you and your family.See question

However, keep in mind that many factors can and influence child support. For example, the reason why you have no income is very relevant. If you receive disability, or have historically been a stay at home parent, that matters. You may have income imputed to you if you are able to work and choose not to. Your best bet is always to consult with an attorney about your rights and responsibilities. If you cannot afford to hire one, look for a local "self help" desk at your courthouse or apply to Nebraska Legal Aid. Best wishes.See question
I conceived my child before I was married. We then married after getting pregnant again and later divorced. Recently a judge awarded full custody to their father who has a couple DUI's and lived with family for years where as the judge told me I m...
Generally, after the divorce is settled, you cannot reopen the issue of paternity unless her non-biological father wants to do so. After this length of time and two opportunities to contest paternity (at her birth and at the divorce), most courts will consider the impact upon the child more than the biological or legal rights of the parents, without more.

I'm needing a divorce from my husband I am 7 months pregnant with his child can I file all the paperwork before the child is born or do I have to wait and will I have to put him on her birth certificate or not
You can file the paperwork to start the divorce now, but you will need to clarify that you ARE currently pregnant. There is a mandatory waiting period in Nebraska of 60 days from the date your spouse is served or enters his voluntary appearance. Whether your local Court will allow you to finalize until the child is born is going to be a matter of local practice. An experienced local attorney can tell you how your judge typically handles these situations. Best wishes!See question
A friend has guardianship of my son we are ready to end the guardianship. There for he come back to live with me we would like for him to come back and live with me before the guardianship is over but we don't know if we can. Also can we dissolve ...
If the guardianship is in Lancaster County and your son is a minor child, there are pro se forms available by which the Guardian and parent could agree to terminate the guardianship. Unless there are special concerns present or someone is objecting, the court hearing would take less than 5 minutes (the judge just needs to receive the paperwork and make an Order). Best wishes to you and your family!See question
Her mother is a huge problem and they would not let me participate in doctor appointments
You must look at your current custody orders/parenting plan to see what your rights and responsibilities are. An attorney can help you interpret these documents, or get them in place if no orders exist. If the other parent is violating the current orders, you can ask the Court for a finding of contempt.

Can my boyfriend of 2 years adopt my children if the biological father agrees
No. To adopt in Nebraska, you must be legally married and have all resided together for at least six months to file this type of adoption. Also, there are background checks required. If the biological father agrees, a stepparent adoption will be much simpler, but he cannot adopt unless you are married. Best wishes.See question
I live in Nebraska, and these forms are not available on our supreme court self-help website. Can you tell me exactly what the form title or DC coding might be? Also, I have sole custody and can show just cause for the move, as well as the fact ...
There is no legal form. Removal cases are modification cases and are very fact specific. The Farnsworth case sets forth the nine factors you must address for the Court to receive an order allowing you to move from the jurisdiction over the other parent's objection. These are complicated and involved cases and really do require the assistance of an attorney. Best wishes.See question
i have been paying child support on three kids , two i dont think are even mine the court has raised my child support to the point i cant make it by i have done the calculations and they come no where near the amount have come up with i have asked...
Parenting time and support are very different issues. You cannot reduce support because the other parent is interfering with visitation. You can ask to modify if there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances (related to finances) outside of the contemplation of the parties at the time the initial order was entered, that has continued for at least three months and is expected to continue for at least six months more. If DHHS/Child Support Enforcement is involved, you may be able to make application for modification through them, but the process is slow. Best wishes.See question
My sister is 16 years old and lives in the state of Nebraska. She wants to be emancipated from our mother because they are moving to a new town and my sister doesn't want to go. My mother also has a long history of alcoholism and abuse. My sister ...
Your mother can sign a temporary delegation of parental powers to allow your sister to stay. Emancipation doesn't really exist as a cause of action in Nebraska, but can very rarely be accomplished through a declaratory judgment. Best wishes.See question
