Will I lose everything in my divorce?

Deciding to end your marriage can be an extremely emotional experience, and understandably so. However, these emotions can sometimes get in the way of dividing marital property. By better understanding the process, seeking guidance when necessary and remaining vigilant during proceedings, you can make sure that your divorce has the best possible outcome.

Alimony after divorce will see change under tax reform

The financial stress of ending a marriage is perhaps undeniable, but it can be mitigated.

Can my ex really get everything in the divorce?

It is a common trope that runs through TV and movies -- a couple splits up, and one spouse ends up with the car, marital home, most of the money and even the dog. While most marital estates are not neatly cleaved in two and then parceled out after a divorce, it is also just as unlikely that one person will leave with almost everything in tow. As an equitable distribution state, Nebraska family law dictates that each person has a right to a fair share of the marital property.

Planning may be solid protection in case of divorce

Couples getting married are often full of jitters, concerned for what might go wrong at the wedding. It may be difficult for engaged couples in Nebraska to consider the possibilities of what may go wrong in the marriage. Divorce is not something newlyweds want to consider, but if it becomes a reality, it is likely to be fraught with emotions.

Divorce often results when resentment builds

Married couples alone understand the factors that lead to their marriages breaking up. In some cases, if the couple fails to communicate, even the spouses may not fully understand what went wrong.
