Accomplished Divorce and Family Law Attorney Helps Nebraska Clients

Reliable representation for divorce, child custody, child support and other domestic matters

The Lincoln firm of Roger P. Cox PC LLO has been assisting clients in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska with their divorces and other family law matters for more than four decades. I will focus on securing the best possible outcome for you, whether the result is achieved through negotiation, mediation or litigation.

Trusted adviser guides you through the divorce process

Making the decision to end a marriage is never easy. Whatever led to your breakup, there are several different ways you can go through the divorce process. I can help you with:

  • Contested divorce — When spouses can’t agree on one or more issues during the divorce process, it is considered a contested matter, and if consensus cannot be reached, decisions on issues such as child custody, child support, alimony and property division are made by a judge.
  • Uncontested divorce — If the parties can achieve agreement on all issues concerning property distribution, custody and support, an uncontested divorce can be completed, allowing parties to avoid the more extensive and expensive process of contested litigation. Even if you believe there is full agreement on all terms, I can advise you to ensure that your interests are protected.
  • Collaborative divorce — To minimize the emotional impact and financial strain associated with divorce, a couple may choose the collaborative divorce process, which involves each spouse and their attorney working together and cooperatively sharing information in order to reach an agreement. 

I’ll take the time to discuss all options with you and develop a tailored strategy to maximize the likelihood of positive results in your case.

Dedicated advocate for child custody and visitation matters

If you’re a parent going through a divorce or separation, nothing is as important as your children. I help clients draft effective, comprehensive custody and parenting time agreements. In cases in which these issues cannot be resolved by agreement, decisions are left to the courts, and a judge will make decisions about joint or sole custody and the parenting time to be awarded to each parent based on the best interests of the child, which involves evaluating the child’s relationship with each parent and various other factors. I will advocate for a favorable arrangement that allows you to maintain a strong relationship with your child.

Compassionate counsel for child support and alimony matters

Regardless of whether the parties were married, each parent has an obligation to support their children financially. In Nebraska, an “income share” method is used to calculate child supportThis calculation considers each parent’s share in proportion to the total amount of parental income. I provide you with solid advice on child support matters and strive to reach a result that will be favorable to both you and your children. Alimony is court-ordered financial support paid from one spouse to another during and/or following a divorce case. Depending on the needs of the spouse, alimony in Nebraska may be granted temporarily or permanently. I am proficient in negotiating and litigating alimony and support matters.


Prenuptial agreements can determine how property will be divided and how alimony will be handled in the event a married couple wishes to divorce. A prenuptial agreement must be entered into before the parties get married, and there are specific legal requirements that must be satisfied for a prenuptial agreement to be valid and enforceable. I’ll work closely with you to draft a prenuptial agreement that will protect your interests and be fully enforceable.
