Q: Understanding a "order for hearing " regarding guardianship of a Minor child.

1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Nebraska on
Answered on Dec 13, 2018
Julie Fowler's answer
Sometimes the Court enters an order to tell the parties of a hearing date that the parties are ordered to appear at. Sometimes these orders also state other court orders that the parties must follow. I'm not sure if that is what is happening in your case as you would have to know the facts of your specific case and what the order actually says.

Julie Fowler's answer
Pets are technically personal property. That being said, you will at times see a court enter a custody type order regarding pets in a divorce. It is possible to bring an action regarding a pet before the court to try to stop the other party from taking away your personal property (in this case the dog).

Julie Fowler's answer
Striking a child can be assault and/or child abuse. One affirmative defense to such charge can be self-defense, no matter the striker's age. The Court could take into consideration the actor and victim's age when deciding whether a crime occurred and whether there is an affirmative defense against being convicted of the crime.

Q: I wrote a story and a radio station wants to play it on the radio. Should I sign the release form giving them copyright?

2 Answers | Asked in Copyright and Intellectual Property for Nebraska on
Answered on Nov 2, 2018
Andrew Zulieve Esq's answer
I would have the release carefully reviewed by a copyright attorney. Depending on the language in the release, it is possible that you are assigning (giving up for all time) at least one and maybe all of your bundle of exclusive copyright interests. Since it appears that you do not want to do that, you might consider giving your director friend a non-exclusive license which, when terminated, would automatically terminate any copyright licensed by that agreement. Good luck with your efforts...

Answered on Oct 31, 2018
Ms Grace I Gardiner's answer
Unless you have additional documents to prove otherwise it does not make sense appealing. He needed to be present in the USA for 18 months before applying. Every time he stayed out more than 180 days before returning you had to start counting towards the five year presence

Q: How do I have clerk take notice of Fed.R.Civ.P Rule 60 (a)?

2 Answers | Asked in Family Law and Child Support for Nebraska on
Answered on Oct 29, 2018
Vanessa Jean Gorden's answer
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure do not apply to family law cases, first of all. Each state's domestic relations statutes and court rules govern family law cases. Second, the clerk does not "take notice" - the Judge may take judicial notice of prior orders in the case where it is appropriate and requested. You will want to consult with a local attorney regarding the status of your case. Please note that regardless of what you filed, if there is not an Order signed by a Judge or Appellate...

Q: Should I pay the closing costs for my ex husband to refinance the home in his name?

2 Answers | Asked in Divorce for Nebraska on
Answered on Oct 10, 2018
Vanessa Jean Gorden's answer
The answer lies in your Divorce Decree. If it says you are responsible to help pay those costs, you are. If it does not say that, don't do it. It's really that simple. If the Decree makes him responsible to refinance, he has an obligation to do it if it's at reasonable cost and he could be subject to contempt if he does not do so. If you have questions about how to interpret your Decree or whether you may have a contempt action if he fails to refinance, you should either contact the lawyer who...

Q: How do judges handle chronic custodial interference?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law for Nebraska on
Answered on Oct 5, 2018
Julie Fowler's answer
The general process to enforce court-ordered parenting time that the other parent is denying is to file a contempt action. The other parent can be ordered up to 6 months jail time for failing to following the court's order. Whether the court will order such or instead something like make up parenting time or an order to reimburse costs for travel expenses when didn't get to see the children after traveling for a visit, depends on the facts and the judge assigned to the case.

Kevin L Dixler's answer
Some parents can never return to the U. S. There are times when exceptional work is undertaken with quite a few hours invested to overcome a permanent bar. A conspiracy to commit a crime can be a permanent bar without substantial work and patience. This, to prove to the satisfaction of the USCIS that a situation exists. This requires relevant documentation. This also takes more time than clients expect.

This seems like a job for an immigration attorney. As a result, I strongly...

Q: Do I need a lawyer?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Juvenile Law for Nebraska on
Answered on Sep 12, 2018
Julie Fowler's answer
This is something that a criminal defense attorney or public defender normally handles. The more proof you have to show that you believed he was being discharged from school, the easier it will be to defend this case. For example, did he send you a text saying is being sent home from school? Does he have a history of skipping school that you weren't aware of, etc?

Not likely, my suggest would be to file and seek custody. If you already have a DV case filed against you, you will want to defend that first.
