What is Child Support and When does it Occur in Nebraska
Child support or maintenance is a continuing, periodic contribution provided by an adult after marriage or other relationship for the child’s financial benefit that results from the relationship. In Nebraska, child support starts after the Court determines the amount paid by both the custodial and the non-custodial parents following a divorce settlement. The non-custodial parent carries the responsibility more because it is presumed that the custodian parent spends directly on the child. Nebraska child support is based on the Child Support Guidelines, which depends mainly on the income shares model, except the parents can prove beyond doubt why the guidelines should be set apart. In this routine, the CourtCourt may require either parent to give child support. Except one parent can prove that the number is unjust or unacceptable, the laws are assumed to be correct. Child support continues in Nebraska until the child reaches 19 and is no longer considered a minor.
