I would get your lawyer to help with a custody action and takes the steps at this point in time to get a custody order which you can later enforce.

1 Answer | Asked in Adoption, Family Law and Child Support for Nebraska on
Answered on Apr 25, 2017

You will have to pay child support until the adoption is completed. You may also have to pay a $65 fee plus pay for service to get the CS stopped. You will continue to owe the back child support. My suggestion is you work with an attorney to help you and negotiate the terms so some of the prior support is resolved in your favor.
