Plattsmouth Attorneys Protecting Parents’ Custody and Visitation Rights

Many people view determining child custody as a battle to be fought, but it does not have to be. Many options are available for parents to amicably achieve equitable parenting time. Our attorneys will take time to understand your situation and discuss important issues such as:

  • Weekly parenting time schedules
  • Vacations and holidays
  • Making decisions about parental input on religion, education, and values
  • Child support obligations

Most family law judges seek to have parents share joint custody of children, if possible, understanding that children often benefit from maintaining meaningful relationships with both parents. Our attorneys can help you and your former partner create a workable parenting plan to present to a judge. By developing a parenting plan on your own, you do not need to leave this very important issue up to an impartial judge.

While we strive for amicable resolutions, we understand that this is not possible in every case. We will aggressively protect your parental rights when sole custody may be the best option for your children, such as in a case involving allegations of domestic violence or abuse.

Child Custody Modifications

Even though your parenting plan will set the stage for moving forward, your needs may change over time. Our lawyers can help you seek parenting time modifications to existing plans for reasons such as relocation and other instances where a substantial change in circumstances has occurred.
