This is why it is important to understand the marital property laws that govern divorce in Nebraska. In order to ensure that you walk away with a fair settlement, it is important to understand how the court makes decisions regarding property division.

The first day of school is often stressful for parents. While trying to keep the morning positive for the children, parents must deal with preparing lunches, making sure everyone is ready while also getting to their own daily appointments.

Understandably, Nebraska police want to keep dangerous drivers off the road so that motorists can travel safely to their destinations. This means being on the lookout for signs of drunk driving.
