Who Gets Financial Support After Divorce In Nebraska?

The issue of financial support is one of the most complex issues for divorcing couples. Alimony, also called spousal support, is a type of mandated financial support given to the lesser earning spouse after divorce to lessen unfair economic hardship. It can be a source of great contention between the two parties.

At Monzón, Guerra & Chipman, we understand how difficult it can be to navigate complex financial matters brought by the end of your marriage. We are dedicated to helping our clients protect their interests and seek fair and sustainable financial support orders during this difficult time.

A Secure Financial Future For You

In Nebraska, courts may grant spousal maintenance based on what is most reasonable and fair according to the details of the individual circumstances. Some of the factors considered include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The financial contributions of both parties during the marriage
  • Whether or not one spouse left his or her career to raise children
  • Support and time needed for lesser earning spouse to re-enter the workforce

Spousal support may be temporary or permanent, depending on the individual factors of the case. These payments are separate from any financial support for the care of the children.

We will strive to employ our experience and extensive knowledge of the law to benefit your case and pursue a reasonable outcome on your behalf.
