1) You will be required to take a Parenting Class approved by the Nebraska Supreme Court
This is not a class about how to take care of your children's physical needs, but a class focusing on how to communicate and work with your child's other parent. There are different levels of classes. Most parents need only take the first, basic class. In high-conflict cases, the court may require a second level class. Many courts will not allow your case to be finalized or even scheduled until you have filed proof of completion of the required parenting class, so your best bet is to do this early!
2) You will be required to mediate with a Nebraska Supreme Court approved Mediator if you cannot agree
Prior to a court hearing your matter, you will be required to participate in mediation with a trained mediator to see if an agreement can be reached.There are different types of mediators, from psychology trained to law trained. There are different styles of conducting mediation, from facilitative to evaluative to transformative. You should discuss with your attorney what type of mediator and mediation is best for your particular case. You should also never go into a mediation without preparing in advance with your attorney by addressing your best and worst case outcomes and your most important goals.
