After the finalization of your Nebraska divorce, there will undoubtedly be times when you or your ex is unable to meet the terms and conditions of your shared parenting agreement precisely. Maybe your son's dentist appointment ran over time and you could not drop him off until an hour later than what the parenting plan specifies. Maybe your daughter went for ice-cream with friends after school and your ex brought her by as soon as she got home. The courts expect and allow for interferences such as these, as they are out of either parent's control. However, what the courts do not allow is intentional interference with parenting time by either one of the parents.
In Nebraska, parents who are court ordered to pay child support must make these payments or risk going against the law. Unfortunately, that incentive isn't always enough to spur a parent into paying. What can you do if you are getting shortchanged out of the child support you rightfully deserve?
Residents in Nebraska who own homes with their spouses and who are getting divorced often want to try and keep their homes after their divorces are final. This can be an especially appealing option for families with young children as it maintains some continuity for the kids. However, care should be exercised when doing this to ensure that the spouse who leaves the home does not unknowingly remain financially responsible for it.
