The separation of joint finances can be one of the more stressful and uncertain aspects of getting a divorce. How will the court divide property? What are the consequences of divorce on your taxes? Do you and your ex-spouse have estate planning issues to resolve? Will there be spousal support payments awarded, and if so, what will the specifics of those payments be? The following are laws specific to Nebraska Divorce and Finances.

 

Nebraska Property Division/Community Property/Debts:

Nebraska is an “equitable distribution” state. Marital property will thus be distributed on terms considered to be fair. Note that “fair” does not necessarily mean equal. In the equitable distribution adjudication, the court will consider, among other things, the contributions of each spouse to the marital estate, the total value of the properties of the parties, the economic circumstances of each party, any misconduct that may have occurred, and the amount of spousal support awarded, if any.  

Nebraska Spousal Support:

The court grants spousal support (also called maintenance or alimony) on a case-by-case basis and in consideration of the relative economic circumstances of the parties. Alimony orders terminate upon the death of either party or the re-marriage of the recipient, except where otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing or by court order.
