Child Custody, Visitation and Support
Whelan Law Office — Omaha, Nebraska
Child custody is often one of the most difficult questions to resolve during the divorce process. That said — no aspect of divorce may have a greater impact on the future happiness of all concerned than the way in which this issue is handled and ultimately resolved.
At Whelan Law Office, our experience with resolving the delicate issues of child custody makes a real difference for people in the Omaha area and in the nearby portions of Nebraska. For a free confidential consultation — call 1-866-935-1746 or contact us online.
Few divorce issues raise more questions than the matter of child custody. At Whelan Law Office, we know that some of the most important parts of our job involve providing clients an objective perspective and with honest, clear and direct answers to questions such as:
- What do terms like full custody, joint custody, legal and physical custody really mean?
- Are visitation and parenting time the same thing?
- Can child custody and visitation agreements be modified after the divorce? And, if so, how often?
- If I've already obtained full child custody, do I need to get the court's permission to relocate to another state?
- Do grandparents have rights to visitation?
- How does the issue of paternity affect child custody, visitation and support?
In addition to answering questions like these — we work with clients, their spouses and opposing counsel to achieve child custody solutions outside of court whenever that's a realistic possibility. However, we want you to know that if that can't happen for any reason — we will not be shy about aggressively representing your interests in a court of law.
Nebraska has a statutory formula in place for calculating child support amounts that considers parental income, the ages and needs of the children, parenting time arrangements and a number of other factors. If you have concerns about how much child support you can expect to pay or receive — we can do a rough calculation that will give you a fairly accurate idea of what the guidelines might proscribe in your case.
