Family Law Areas of Practice:
Deborah assists clients in finding
solutions for every aspect of their divorce, including property division and
spousal support, as well as issues pertaining to retirement, and/or pension,
and 401K division.
Child Custody and Visitation- Any visitation agreement must
take into account the best interests of your child and your family. The concerns of our clients are paramount in custody and visitation agreements that meet your needs. In addition, if relocation out of state with your child is in your plans, you must seek court permission.
Child Support- Child support can be more than a computerized calculation. It is also important to analyze the individual needs of the child, and their health and activities. Although the Nebraska
Child Support Guidelines are
an Important factor in the child support decision, It Is important to remember that there are valid Issues to be presented on both sides that
can impact those calculations.
Custody Modification and Enforcement of Court
Orders- Deborah can help modify
your child support order or custody and visitation agreement. She can also help
enforce payment of court-ordered child support or spousal support.
Alimony: Although alimony
findings are not as plentiful as they were in the past, they can be a very important factor in stabilizing home economics. In divorce proceedings, it can be critical for even
temporary award of alimony or spousal support while the parties stabilize the economies of two homes, where there was once one. Sometimes this can be achieved through thoughtful debt allocation. In a long-term marriage or where health concerns are factors, an analysis of the positive impact spousal support can have is essential. It is equally important to ensure that neither debt reallocation nor alimony results in an unfair distribution of monetary assets.
