Nebraska Counselors Advise on Separation Versus Divorce

Sometimes there are reasons a married couple may wish to separate without legally and fully dissolving their marriage. These parties may not meet the residency requirement to file for divorce, or they may have concerns for insurance coverage, immigration consequences, military benefits, or religious concerns that make legal separation the best option for them. Our lawyers have handled many legal separations and are able to discuss the advantages and advise parties to a Legal Separation in Nebraska, whether or not the separation is in preparation for divorce or the separation itself will be the final Decree between the parties.

If you are interested in pursuing a Legal Separation, call GordenLaw at 402-817-1450 or contact us online to move forward with an initial strategy session.


Although rare, Nebraska law allows some marriages to be annulled under very specific circumstances, such as bigamy or fraud. Attorneys at GordenLaw have successfully handled annulments in the past.
