Back-to-school child custody issues for Nebraska parents

The first day of school is often stressful for parents. While trying to keep the morning positive for the children, parents must deal with preparing lunches, making sure everyone is ready while also getting to their own daily appointments. If a Nebraska parent has spent the summer going through a divorce, there may be additional strain in the home on the first day of school, especially if child custody issues are still unresolved.

Making children pawns in child custody issues may cause harm

Following a divorce, some parents may find it easy to be cordial to their former spouses, especially when dealing with issues pertaining to the children. Children are quick to sense hostility between the two people they love most, and some of the hurtful tactics a parent may use to avoid communicating with the co-parent place the children in an uncomfortable position. However, child custody arrangements often require communication, and parents may be causing undue stress and harm to their children by using them as messengers to avoid their ex-spouses.

Man protests child custody situation outside courthouse

Some parents in Nebraska may be grateful for a man in another state who has taken a public stand outside a courthouse in his area. The man is calling for 50/50 child custody laws, saying children need both parents, and parents deserve equal time with their children. The way it stands, not every child custody arrangement includes equal amounts of time with both parents.

YouTube parents lose child custody after videos go viral

YouTube fans and opponents in Nebraska and across the country formed varying opinions of a man and woman who posted videos of so-called pranks on their five children. Two of the children, who are not the biological children of the woman, seemed to receive the worst of the pranks. The videos often included the parents screaming and swearing at their children, accusing them of doing things they did not do and breaking their toys. Those parents are now facing child custody issues.

Child custody case takes an interesting turn

The definition of family seems to have become more elastic as time passes. No longer limited to mother, father and children, families have expanded beyond the traditional biological units. However, this evolution creates challenges for child custody courts in Nebraska and beyond. One out-of-state family demonstrated this in their recent custody battle.
