Undoubtedly, one of the most serious aspects of any divorce or paternity case is how the Divorce Court (or the parties themselves), will ultimately determine the issue of child custody and visitation. While the path of a child custody case in the Omaha courts is fairly predictable, clients get in trouble when they lose sight of the overall importance of custody agreements, especially when their divorce lawyers fail to keep them focused on the impact these decisions will have on the children.
Everything that you say on Facebook, in a text, in an e-mail or on any other social networking site can be used as evidence, often with dire consequences in your divorce case.
So many of my Omaha divorce clients ask me, how do we decide what kind of custody arrangement is appropriate? Most divorce lawyers will say something like, “It really should be decided on a case-by-case basis,” or “Every case is different.” While true, let me share a few things I have seen in my nearly two decades of handling divorce and child custody cases.
One of the most unconventional ways to move forward in your child custody case in Omaha is with a child custody expert (most often a therapist or psychologist) who works with the clients outside of the presence of the lawyers to help the parties work through their custody issues.
Kids always want to please both of their parents, and this is never truer when it comes to divorce. Often, when a child is with his mother, he will tell her, “I want to live with you.” Then when he is with his dad, he will say the same thing. Unfortunately, when this happens, it gets in the way of working through the child custody issues related to the divorce in a healthy way.
