Rule 2-6. Consents to Adoption

   A. Applications for an order consenting to adoption of children subject to jurisdiction of the court must be accompanied by a photocopy or duplicate original of all relinquishments and consents to adoption as required by law. Attorneys should note that in case of abandonment or other situations where one or both of the natural parents are unable to consent, substitute consents are required.

   B. Any delinquent support payments remain a judgment against the party ordered to pay such support, unless a receipt or satisfaction is filed by the party to whom the support is due.

   C. Upon completion of the adoption proceedings, an appropriate motion shall be filed together with a proposed order terminating all future support as of the date of the adoption decree. The motion and proposed order shall be accompanied by a copy of the adoptive decree. The decree of adoption shall be redacted to comply with Neb. Ct. R. § 6-1521.

Adopted effective January 29, 2000; Rule 2-6 deleted and Rule 2-7 renumbered to Rule 2-6 and amended January 31, 2018.
