How is Property Divided in Nebraska?

Property division is determined through equitable distribution. This means that the court will attempt to divide marital assets and debts in a way that it deems fair for both parties, taking into account factors such as the length of the marriage, each partner’s earning capacity and contribution to the marriage, any agreements reached between the couples concerning separate or marital property before or during divorce proceedings, and much more.

Under Nebraska law, all property acquired by either spouse during their marriage is generally considered marital property. This includes income earned by either spouse while married and gifts received jointly from family members or friends. It also includes real estate ownership rights (which involve an allocation of value), retirement benefits accumulated after marriage, and pensions earned during each person’s membership in a labor union or other organization providing such benefits. Investments made with funds from joint accounts created during the marriage (including stocks and bonds) and cars purchased jointly by married spouses before filing for divorce can be included.

All these items are distributed between partners upon dissolution of their marriage contract. This is why it can be helpful to have the assistance of an experienced lawyer, such as those at GordenLaw, LLC. We will work hard for you and your financial assets.

What Disputes Happen When Dividing Property During a Divorce?

Common disputes occurring during property division in a divorce involve disputes about the ownership rights of marital property, valuation issues, and arguments over which assets are considered marital versus separate. Additionally, disagreements may arise regarding who should assume debts or other liabilities when dividing shared assets. In rare cases, one spouse may also try to conceal assets or value them lower than they are to obtain more during the split.

Fortunately, spouses can negotiate an agreeable settlement that fully preserves each party’s rights for shared property and avoids costly court fees associated with a drawn-out dispute. However, enlisting legal assistance becomes paramount in a divorce settlement if negotiations fail. A qualified lawyer will be able to guide you through this process and help protect your rights while advocating for your best interests throughout the proceedings.

How are Property Division Disputes Resolved?

Property division disputes during a divorce can be detailed and emotionally charged, especially when one spouse believes they are entitled to more than the other. Property division lawyers at GordenLaw, LLC can help resolve these challenging property disputes.

In most cases, all assets acquired by either spouse during the marriage are considered marital assets and subject to equitable division.
