All parents have a duty to financially support their children. In Nebraska, a parent’s obligation is based on several factors outlined in Nebraska law and Child Support guidelines. Child support is meant to cover a wide range of expenses for the child, such as housing, food, educational expenses, clothing, medical and dental expenses, travel, or extracurricular activities.
At Carlson & Burnett, we represent parents in child support matters. When a parent experience a change in income or other circumstance, that may affect child support, our Omaha family law attorneys can give advice, including seeking modification of a child support or medical support order.
Estimating Child Support Payments
The number of minor children and parental custody affects a parent’s child support obligation, along with income, earning capacity, and several other factors. An experienced family law attorney at Carlson & Burnett will be able to advise you on the law and help you obtain a just result, whether paying or receiving child support.

- The parent’s gross income or earning capacity
- The number of children in the household
- The cost of health or dental and/or vision insurance
