Annotations

  • Although the Nebraska grandparent visitation statutes recognize the interests of the child in the continuation of the grandparent relationship, under Nebraska's grandparent visitation statutes as a whole, the best interests of the child consideration does not deprive the parent of sufficient protection, because visitation will not be awarded where such visitation would adversely interfere with the parent-child relationship. Hamit v. Hamit, 271 Neb. 659, 715 N.W.2d 512 (2006).

  • Nebraska's grandparent visitation statutes are not unconstitutional on their face. Hamit v. Hamit, 271 Neb. 659, 715 N.W.2d 512 (2006).
