Grandparents and grandkids - relationships that count

Grandparents and their grandchildren often have special connections that live in memories forever. Sometimes divorce, adoption or other fluid situations put those relationships at risk, leaving the former generation to wonder about its place in the ones to follow. A Boston College study may encourage Nebraska families who face this situation.

Tax code changes and your divorce

If you and your spouse have been discussing filing for divorce in Nebraska, it could be very important for you to understand how the newly enacted tax code changes may impact the settlement choices you make as well as how the timing of your final settlement might impact your choices. As explained by the American Bar Association Journal, since 1942 people who have made spousal support payments have been able to deduct these payments from their federal income tax returns. That is going to change starting January 1, 2019.

How should I approach summer plans with my ex?

Even though it is still only springtime in Nebraska, it is not too soon for parents to be making plans for summer vacation. That last day of school is right around the corner and the more you can be prepared for the less structured time compared to when your kids are in school, the better. This is perhaps especially true when you and your former spouse have to figure out who has the kids when and what activities you will each share with them.

Managing divorce and bankruptcy together

Whether a couple in Nebraska contemplates divorce at the end of the year amid the holiday shopping season or at any other time, financial issues may well rear their heads as part of the marital troubles. Money is not simply something that married people fight about but it can be something that contributes to the end of the marriage. If the financial challenges are severe enough, consideration may be given to filing for bankruptcy as well as for divorce.

Can I keep my home when getting divorced?

While the holidays are a time of joy and celebration for many people, you may be one of the residents in Nebraska who is facing the tough decision about whether to end your marriage or stay in it. This choice is often faced at the holidays and when in the midst of decorating your home, the last thing you may want to think about is giving up your home if you get divorced. This feeling quite frequently leads spouses to work very hard to keep their homes.

Co-parenting through the holidays with grace

With November already here, you are likely realizing that it is time to think about planning your holiday season. The time from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day can be a continual flow of activity and special events that, while fun, may also be exhausting in many ways. If you are a divorced parent, you understand how difficult it can be to work through this time with your children's other parent. How can you help make this time of year manageable for you and positive for your kids?

What tools can help me co-parent?

If you are like most parents getting divorced in Nebraska, the well-being and happiness of your children is a primary priority for you during this significant change in their lives. As you seek for ways to help them emotionally navigate your divorce and live after the divorce is over, one thing you can help them with is by finding positive ways to work with their other parent to jointly raise them.

Divorce could be genetic

As parents across Nebraska know, children are similar to their parents in ways many are unable to predict. A new study believes that children who have divorced parents may end up similarly divorced not because they are repeating their parents' behavior but because of genetics.

New studies support shared parenting time

Many couples in Nebraska deciding to divorce have a concern first and foremost for their children. Trying to support the kids while going through a difficult time personally, it is easy for many parents to believe that they would be best suited to have the children, but new studies show that children who have shared custody between both parents come out on top.

When you need a QDRO

If you are facing an impending divorce in Nebraska, you no doubt have many questions about how this major life event may impact you financially. For many people the emotional side of letting go of many special belongings is made worse when the reality of the financial losses starts to set in. However, it is important for you to learn about the ways in which you may be able to preserve some of your savings.
