48 Questions Answered

Q. My 17 year old daughter is pregnant. I want custody of baby or power of attorney. Is that possible? She will be 18 when
A: The child is not an adult until 19 in Nebraska. Power of attorney over the child that is not born is not allowed. You should contact social services and see about getting support for the medical delivery and the father will be required to pay for the medical share. The child once born should be turned over to you to raise at least until the mother is 19, or the father is given custody since he is an adult.
Q. How long of a sentence minimum-maximum does 3rd degree assault mutual consent carry
A: It is a class one misdemeanor offense and carries 0 to 1 year in jail and/or a $1000.00 fine.
Q. if a person comes into anothers house thinking no one home and gets bittin by the homeowners pitbull is the homeowner
A: A person who enters into your home without permission is an intruder and liable for any damage or injury they cause or sustain. Only if they had permission would the home owner be liable.
Q. My wife got third degree domestic assault. Nebraska. Class a misdemeanor. No past history. How long will no contact be?
A: The no contact is until the case has been resolved unless the court allows the contact. My suggestion is that you have her lawyer remove the no-contact order or if your the alleged victim you speak to the prosecution and her lawyer about having it removed. A good criminal lawyer should be the person you consult with.
Q. If someone changed their name legally and got married with their previous last name is the marriage legally binding?
A: Not real sure of the question you are asking. If someone changed their name legally (from Smith to Jones) and got married under a now false name (Smith) the marriage would still be valid. The license would have to be changed to correct the name, assuming they did everything else to obtain a civil marriage license. If the former named party was married at the time, the new marriage would be subject to bring able to be annulled, should the new spouse seek to have the marriage voided. Hope that helps.
Q. My car caught on fire whyll getting repaired at machanics shop his howl shop caught fire
A: You should try and sue in small claims and then try and collect on the judgment.
Q. I have a court date on the 17th for a ticket can i get it pushed back a few days by asking to take it to juvenile court?
A: While you may be able to the first court date is generally an advisement hearing. Best to get a lawyer and have them file a motion to have the matter moved to juvenile court.
Q. Can my ex move out of state with our daughter without my consent?
A: Yes, unless you have an existing court order she can move and take the child with her. I would suggest you contact a lawyer and get a order in place. If she moves with the child and no order, once you get jurisdiction in another state you will have to fight for your rights in the new state.
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.
