New Nebraska law allows guardian to intervene in divorce proceedings
A Nebraska law that allows guardians to intervene when the parents are in a divorce is being used to push back against a growing trend toward court orders that could undermine the rights of married parents to manage their children.
According to The Verge, Nebraska’s new guardianship law was signed into law in February and was meant to allow for some of the most common guardianship issues that are being seen in the United States today.
The law is the first of its kind in the country, but it is also the first to include a clause that states that any family in which a person has been diagnosed with autism or other special needs could ask the court to give up their guardianship rights.
The new law is also being used by some parents who have been divorced and are seeking custody of their children to ask a judge to allow them to intervene and seek custody.
A number of states are moving in that direction, including Utah, where a court recently overturned a Utah law that had made it a crime to force parents to relinquish guardianship of their minor children, and Indiana, where one parent was ordered to give his or her ex-spouse’s children back.
While some experts have said that the use of a court order to make these requests is not a new phenomenon, this is the most comprehensive such case law that has been presented to date.
Currently, the guardianship court has the right to ask parents to waive their rights if they believe that the child is in immediate danger, in a case that is considered a custody dispute.
But many states are now moving to require guardians to waive this request in order to be able to get a court to agree to take custody of the child.
If a child has been taken from a parent and placed in a court-ordered custodial environment, and the child has a developmental disability, it is considered that the court must grant the request.
In Nebraska, the law states that a parent can ask for the court’s permission to take back custody of a child if there is a serious safety risk to the child, or if there are serious concerns that the children are in imminent danger of harm.
A court may not give permission to remove a child without a court hearing, unless it can demonstrate that there is no other reasonable alternative for obtaining custody.
In this case, the court has no other alternative.
The law also allows a guardian to request that a court give up custody if the parents cannot resolve the dispute peacefully.
The New Nebraska Law says that any guardian of a minor child has the duty to seek to have the parent of the minor child who is the subject of the guardians’ orders removed from the child’s care if the parent “willfully, maliciously, knowingly, or recklessly endangers the safety of the person or property of the other party.”
If a parent is denied guardianship, they can seek court order for the person to be removed from their child, according to the law.
If a parent does not seek court orders to remove the person from their children, they will be held in contempt of court and be required to pay fines.
The Nebraska Guardianship Law says the person can also seek temporary restraining orders, and other remedies if the court finds that the person has not complied with the court order.
If the person is not removed, the person could be subject to permanent guardianship.
A spokesperson for Nebraska’s Department of Health and Human Services told The Verge that Nebraska is the only state in the US that does not require guardianship orders to be waived, and that guardianship in Nebraska is in the hands of the court.
A spokesperson for the Department of Public Health in Nebraska did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
However, advocates are concerned that this new law could be used by parents to argue that they have no other option to get custody of children when they are not the parent and can not provide the services needed.
“Parents who are divorced, having a child with autism, or other children, who are being abused, who have not been adequately supported in their care, who lack adequate access to child services, they should be able, and they should, have a chance to assert the court system’s jurisdiction over them,” said Lisa Soto, the director of the Nebraska Guardians Program at the National Parents Organization.
“The only way to have a better outcome is to give these children a fair chance to be placed with a parent who can help them.
And that is not happening.”
