Knowledgeable representatives seek beneficial resolutions for divorcing spouses
For a couple to obtain a divorce in Nebraska on no-fault grounds, the marriage must be irretrievably broken and at least one spouse must have resided in the state for at least 12 months prior to beginning the action. We focus on facilitating the divorce process and helping clients with issues related to:
- Uncontested divorce — If you and your spouse agree on all terms of the divorce, you might qualify for an uncontested divorce. This option allows couples to avoid trial and complete their divorce in a relatively efficient and cost-effective process. We are deeply familiar with the legal requirements for uncontested divorce and can help you decide if this is a suitable option for you.
- Contested divorce — While generally the parties themselves are in the best position to understand and determine how to unwind their marriage partnership, at times, parties' positions can be so different that compromise is not possible, and a Judge must make some or all of the decisions in a divorce case. When this occurs, GordenLaw's attorneys advocate for their clients within the courtroom to help Courts have the information about the facts and the law in order to make those decisions. Our attorneys invest in significant continuing legal education specifically directed towards litigation to be prepared for when this occurs for their clients.
- Modification to divorce decree — Your lifestyle and financial circumstances may change significantly over time and affect your ability to pay child support, alimony or maintain other agreements. If necessary, we can request a post-judgment modification on your behalf and help you prepare the required documents for your case.
From filing the initial complaint to modifying an existing divorce decree, we will make it our task to provide guidance on the key aspects of your divorce and advocate for your rights every step of the way.
Intuitive lawyers protect your property rights and financial interests during divorce
When divorcing spouses cannot agree on how to divide property, Nebraska courts will distribute marital property according to what they find to be fair and equitable. The property subject to division generally includes anything acquired during the marriage, with possible exceptions such as gifts and inheritances given to one spouse. In these determinations, judges weigh factors like each spouse’s respective earning capacity to decide what is equitable. Our attorneys help clients pursue reasonable resolutions with respect to personal property, bank accounts, stocks, other assets and debts. You can count on us to help you preserve control over the property you are entitled to.
