Omaha Divorce Lawyer

Experienced Legal Representation Dedicated to Your Needs

Divorce can be a simple or complicated process, depending on the circumstances of your unique situation. It is not a cookie-cutter matter because of the variation of personalities, finances, personal histories, family dynamics, and other factors that are involved.

Fortunately, the state of Nebraska makes the process as simple as possible through its pure no-fault policy. You do not have to prove any wrongdoing of your spouse in court to accomplish your divorce. This eliminates the blame and bitterness that can often accompany the process.

Is Nebraska a No Fault Divorce State?

In 1972, the state of Nebraska approved its no-fault divorce law which means a judge can dissolve you marriage if it is deemed "irretrievably broken.” Even if your spouse disagrees with you, you can still petition for a no-fault divorce.

You will only have to demonstrate to the court that there is no hope of a reconciliation between you and your spouse. This can be done through your own testimony as well as that of family and friends. Before filing for divorce, either you or your spouse must reside in Nebraska for at least one year.

How to File for Divorce

You must file a petition with the court that includes the proposed details of your divorce such as:

  • Statements regarding the breakdown of the marriage

  • Statements regarding any children involved along with custody and visitation arrangements

  • Details about your marital property and debts, including pensions and retirement accounts

  • Whether either spouse will seek spousal support (alimony)

You will then have to wait for 60 days before a judge can hear your case. During this period, you can work out the details of your divorce arrangements with your spouse, such as those involving children, property, and more. If you and your spouse can agree on settlement terms, your agreement can be submitted to the court for approval when your hearing takes place. If you cannot come to an agreement, then the judge will have to make these decisions for you based on the evidence that both sides presents.
