Omaha Child Custody Attorney

We have assisted mothers and fathers with negotiating custody, support and other child-related agreements that not only protect their parental rights but are also in the best interests of their children. Managing partners Christopher A. Vacanti and Kelly T. Shattuck offer decades of effective legal representation in cases regarding:

Child Custody And Visitation: At Vacanti | Shattuck | Finocchiaro Attorneys, we help mothers and fathers negotiate parenting plans that allow them to spend the maximum amount of parenting time with their children.

Child Support: Our lawyers advocate and advise during child support proceedings, seeing that both parents’ incomes are accurately represented and our client’s resources are maximized. We also represent unmarried parents during paternity and child support proceedings, making sure that the parental rights of each parent are protected in the child support, parenting time and custody agreements.

Paternity: If you are being named as the father of a child in a claim for child support payments, our attorneys will protect your rights during paternity proceedings. We will see that the court issues a parenting order in connection with the child support proceedings, allowing you access to your child and handle your request for modification of custody, visitation or support.

Father’s Rights: Our attorneys at Vacanti | Shattuck | Finocchiaro Attorneys are known by many as the fathers’ rights lawyers. We will help you receive a child custody and visitation order that provides you with maximum parenting time. Whether you are going through a divorce or have never been married to your child’s other parent, we will help you protect your rights as a parent.
