John W. Ballew Jr. and Natalie Stone-Burns Hazen have been helping families in Lincoln and all across Nebraska with issues surrounding custody and child support. They lead our divorce and family law practice. These accomplished, compassionate, legal professionals have successfully helped individuals, couples, and families in Lincoln and statewide with a broad range of domestic issues, including child custody and child support. They account for decades of the more than 50 years of combined experience at the firm.
At Ballew Covalt Hazen, our counsel for any child access issue is based upon “the best interests of the child.” We clearly and fully explain the distinctions between sole, joint, legal and physical custody, as well as the difference between parenting time and visitation; recommend custody and visitation solutions for a parental relocation, or custody and support modification; the role played by paternity for unmarried parents with support and custody issues; and the possibility of grandparent or stepparent custody, if one or both parents has ignored parental responsibilities.
