I got full legal and physical custody of my 2 boys. (7 & 5). I was married for 8 years and bought a house 2 weeks ago, in court today she waved any rights to the house. I live in Hawaii and she lives in Nebraska. She gets them every summer and Christmas but has to pay for 100% of transportation. She gets to claim one every year to help with transportation and no one pays child support or alimony. If she doesn't pay for them, the kids don't go. My parents think I should've went to trial and tried to get her to have < parenting time > here in Hawaii only. Both of us are fit parents, would I have been able to get that? I make about 50k and she makes about 30k. I'm so glad it's over but wonder if I made a good choice.

What's wrong with summers and Christmas in Nebraska? Aside from it being Nebraska, of course.

The distance is a shame, but it sounds like you two worked it out.

This is why you should never get family involved, they tend to muddy the waters.

I see nothing wrong with what you and your ex worked out.
the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Good job not only on the result but keeping your own parents in check. Sometimes family members can be too zealous in thinking they still know best for their kids and by extension their grandkids. You made the best deal for your kids. Congrats
