40 Questions Answered

Q. My ex boyfriend grabbed my daughter and took off with her. I haven’t heard from them since. Is there anything I can do?
A: If you were hurt when he elbowed you and pushed you you should call the police and get him arrested for assault and then you will have law enforcement help getting your child back. Otherwise without a criminal matter the police will not be involved and if he is the father of the child it is not kidnapping. If an existing custody order is in place then he may have violated it. Get the cops involved for the assault is the fastest way to get your child back. Cops won't enforce custody orders.
Q. My question is my fiance went to our vets and told them some story and got the billing change to his name and had it
A: You need to get a lawyer involved to obtain the dog(s) so that he does not take them. If you have proof than you should be able to get them back. Timing is essential for getting the dog(s) back. You may also have certain rights as regards other mutual property.
Q. Is it appropiate for the judge to have the da have apt with defendent before a crininal jury trial
A: The court will normally set a pre-trial hearing prior to the jury trial just to make sure there are no remaining issues and to insure that the proper jury instructions have been approved or submitted.
Q. Can I give temp.gaurdianship and custity of my kids to my mother without getting a layers involved ?
A: If you are the only parent on the birth certificate you can provide guardianship to your mother. If another parent is involved than they would have to sign off in theory. This would allow her to send the kids to school, medical needs, etc..
Q. My son is 19 girlfriend is 17 1/2 and they have a 3 month old son they want to leave NE and move to NC can they?
A: If she leaves without her parents permission they she can be in trouble. The age to be an adult in NE is 19. So the answer is Son can go, but daughter has to be get permission or wait til she is old enough.
Q. If my child was taken away from the mother and not placed in my home after 3 1/2 years im still on supervised visits
A: The best advice I can give you is to get a lawyer. The court should have awarded you custody if the child was taken from the other parent. With a lawyers help and advice you should be able to regain custody.
Q. If I asked for a modifcation of my child support and. Decide to dismiss the case can the other party continue it ?
A: You could move to dismiss the action, but the other side depending on how far it progressed could move it forward. It is very easy to file a modification based upon a chance of circumstances. It is always best to talk to a lawyer to learn about the ramifications of any legal action.
Q. How does abandonment work in Nebraska as far as parental rights
A: Sorry, but your question raises a number of issues and also concerns. It would be best for you to consult an attorney who should be able to get you the adoption you desire.
Q. How much time does a judge have to make a ruling on a supression hearing misdemeanor charge?
A: While there is no set time limit, unless the party is in custody delays of months would likely be acceptable. The forcing the court to rule is not an real option since it will likely result in a denial by the court. The defense cannot even appeal the ruling until the defendant has been sentenced.
