About Nebraskans for Family, Inc.
We are committed to improving the current treatment that most devoted and dedicated parents across the State of Nebraska encounter every day as they enter into the child custody or divorce process. Our goals clearly outline our direction and intentions with regard to establishing what is best for the children, all the way to establishing equality for parents and ridding the courts of the power to discriminate against a parent because of gender. Children have both a mother and a father, and there is no reason that today's children should not share the equal value of both parents. Our goal is not to take children from either parent, only to ensure that both parents are treated equally and receive equal time with their children. In addition, he believe that it is wrong for state agencies and courts to neglect our children by forcing them to live in an abusive environment. We understand that the Federal Government supports Domestic Violence programs so long as a the victim is a heterosexual female; however, these groups are powerless to help the children who are living in an abusive environment where the victim is male.

Children need two parentss, not part-time visitors, which is the role that Nebraska non-custodial parents are expected to accept. Is this all that Nebraska parents are worthy of? We certainly do not believe so, and the statistics provide strong support. We seek to shed light on the disparaging discrimination that parents throughout the State of Nebraska have faced for decades. It is the discrimination that has become a built-in mechanism of nearly every child custody case in courts throughout this State. You do not have to be a non-custodial parent to become a member; all you have to do is believe that children need two loving parents and that both parents should be considered equally important!
Together we need to stand up for the rights of all parents, as well as future parents, across the state of Nebraska and put an end to the rampant discrimination that parents face in the child custody process. Some parents fight in wars and battles on behalf of our beloved country; but every all parents should elect to fight a battle that involves the right to be an equal part in the life of his or her children, and for the protection and well-being of his or her children. Do not lose focus and do not give up! After all, we are all in this battle and our children are counting on us! It is time we unite, fight with all our might, and not quit until we have set this archaic system right and have blown the discrimination out of sight. The time to act is now; so don't let your opportunity slip away. Your children need you! And, we want you!
