The last hearing was when the child was 10
answered on Mar 28, 2023
I can't comment on how Colorado does things but in Nebraska, a child that is of suitable age and experience may be allowed to testify at trial. Generally 16 years old is old enough but it depends on the specific child and specifics of the case. Most cases settle without a trial so generally... Read more »

That depends. You may not believe anything needs to change and you can file a General Denial type Answer to require the moving party to prove their allegations. Or you may also want to allege a different set of material and substantial circumstances that have changed and request a different... Read more »
When a child turns of legal age in Nebraska, can they themselves seek retroactive child support from their non-custodial parent (even though no parternity has not been established, but know who the non-custodial parent is, and resided out of state)?
answered on Feb 16, 2023
Child support is owed to the person who supports the child during the child's minority, not technically to the child. I have never seen the Court allow a person to bring an action for child support if paternity and child support weren't established while the child was a minor. The... Read more »

If you live in Nebraska, the age of majority is 19 years old. Thus, an 18 year in Nebraska is generally still in the legal custody of their parents. One exception to this would be if the 18 year old is legally emancipated by court order.

The Nebraska Supreme Court has put together a number of pamphlets that help explain the juvenile court system process. It includes what the first hearing will likely be like.
I know child support must be paid until age 19 in Nebraska, but why would the mother get the money if the child no longer lives there after age 18? Can it go directly to the 18 year old child instead?
answered on Jan 9, 2023
It is actually not uncommon for a parent to still be ordered to pay child support even though the teenage child is no longer living with the custodial parent. The most common situation is when the teen is living in the dorms at the freshman year of college. So long as the custodial parent is... Read more »
Is it true that evidence brought up during a mediation cannot be brought up in court before a judge. Since i know my ex and i wont be able to agree during mediation.
answered on Jan 10, 2023
At trial, you can generally testify as to what the other party said to you. One exception to this is usually that comments that a person said to you as part of a formal mediation session are not allowed to be disclosed in Court.
Thus, generally yes, statements made in mediation are... Read more »

I would like to know How many times you can File for a protection Is order in Nebraska Is there a limit on how many you can file in a year
answered on Dec 29, 2022
I don't believe there is a set limit. However, a Court can reprimand a person (such as awarding attorney fees) for filing frivilous actions, such as repeatedly filing new actions after losing a similar action.
My sons mother has a temporary custody order for my son how longdoes that temporary order last in nebraska??
answered on Dec 19, 2022
If it is an ex parte order, it generally only lasts until the hearing date that is generally set soon after the ex parte order is entered (usually within about 10 days).
If it is a temporary order in a protection order case, then it often states it lasts only a certain period of time, such... Read more »
He is abusive and I don't want him have my address. He is withholding the payment until I give him the information. I need that income to make my monthly bills. Can you tell me what my legal options are?
answered on Dec 7, 2022
You will need to look at the terms of your order. It would be unusual for your order to require you to provide such information to the other party in order to receive support.
If both child support and spousal support are owed, then the party can pay both through the Nebraska Child... Read more »
Am I able to self file to ask the judge for a temporary parenting plan? As my ex spouse has completely cut me out of our daughter's life and I'd like to have time with her during the proceedings.
answered on Nov 3, 2022
If it is an original action (not a modification of a prior order), then the Court will normally allow the parties to set the case for a temporary hearing. You are not required to have an attorney to assist you with a custody case. However, you are still held to the same court rules and procedures... Read more »

Check your child support order. Most include the language that child support continues until the minor child attains the age of majority, dies, marries, joins the military or is "otherwise no longer dependent upon the parents for support". You should be able to file a quick Complaint to... Read more »
answered on Nov 3, 2022
Yes. If the party that is owed the money wants to forgive the child support debt, the Court will generally allow it. If the party who is owed the money doesn't want to write it off, then your options are often limited and you may likely need to start making payments towards the debt.
We have been separated for over a year because of domestic issues. I have gotten my own place to live within that year. He has gotten evicted from his place and now says that I am obligated by law to allow him to stay in my home.. my name is the only name on the lease
answered on Nov 3, 2022
It would be very unusual for the Court to order that you have to allow your spouse to move into your apartment when they are not on your lease and there is a history of domestic violence. If you no longer want to be married, you may want to file a divorce action to end the marriage and your duties... Read more »

Depending on how the messages were sent, there may still be a way to recover these. This could be something more complicated such as a subpoena or more simple such as your phone records or looking in your archived messages.

Paternity tests result speeds depend on the lab. You can generally get rush results within a few days. Normally you would expect results from most labs within a few weeks.
