Nebraska Domestic Violence Charges – What You Need To Know (Infographic)

As a criminal law attorney who defends clients against Nebraska domestic violence charges and represents clients on both sides of domestic violence protection orders, I’ve helped both survivors and those accused of domestic violence for years.

Whether you’re a domestic violence survivor needing a domestic abuse protection order or someone facing Nebraska domestic violence charges, it can be a frightening time. At Hightower Reff, we believe making the legal part of the case more clear helps make it less scary.


Hightower Reff Law is a team of confident, clear, committed attorneys representing clients in the Omaha metro and surrounding areas in family law and criminal defense/dui.


No matter which side of the case you’re on, there are some basics about the law and Nebraska domestic violence charges that you should know:

 

When you’re facing Nebraska domestic violence charges, a protection order will be filed against you separately. You can use the same lawyer for both.

Get a lawyer on board as soon as you know about the intimate partner abuse allegations. You’ll want to be sure that lawyer knows Nebraska domestic violence law and has experience.

If you’re a survivor, have a lawyer on your side who can support you in getting, and enforcing, a protection order.

Choosing the right lawyer for your domestic violence charges – “Confident. Clear. Committed” can be your guide

At Hightower Reff, “Confident. Clear. Committed” isn’t just a tagline. It’s a guidepost for everything we do. It can also be a guidepost to help you evaluate a lawyer you’re thinking of hiring.

After you meet with the lawyer, and before you make the hiring decision, ask yourself:

  1. Did the lawyer give me information to help make the legal process in my case more CLEAR?
  2. Do I believe the lawyer is COMMITTED to helping me with my case?
  3. Am I CONFIDENT that the lawyer has the experience and skill it takes to make the process in my case as smooth as possible?

A final word of warning – Miranda style 

Of course, it’s almost always a bad idea to talk to police without a lawyer. Remember, anything you say can be used against you… and it’s a good bet that it will be.

How to Calculate Nebraska Child Support (Infographic)

This infographic on how to calculate Nebraska child support is a basic tool to help you feel more knowledgeable about your child support case. It may help you get an idea of what your child support award or payment could look like.

It’s always best to work with an experienced child support attorney like the ones at Hightower Reff Law in Omaha, so they can review your case and run a child support calculation using specially designed Nebraska child support calculation software. This tool will give you the knowledge you need to prepare for your meeting.

 

In Nebraska joint custody cases, (where each parent’s time exceeds 142 days per year) the court will use the joint custody calculation worksheet.

Nebraska child support law can be tricky

Nebraska child support law isn’t always as straight forward as it may seem. For example, in some cases, Nebraska courts may let you deviate from Nebraska Child Support Guidelines, or assign more or less income than you or the other parent actually makes.

When a client comes to see us  for child support case consultation at Hightower Reff, we run a child support calculation for them with specially designed Nebraska child support calculation software, and apply our knowledge of Nebraska child support law to the facts of their case.

Why a lawyer can make a difference in your Nebraska child support case

We often find facts that make a difference in child support as we work through a case with a client. For instance, income may not always be as it seems, or as the opposing party claims. Two examples are: when a party is self employed and what they really earn is different than what’s reflected in their tax documents, or when a party is capable of earning more than his or her current job pays – but chooses not to.

The best thing to do if you’re curious about child support is to consult with an attorney who knows Nebraska child support law.
