Nebraska Division of Marital Property Lawyer

It is important to understand that Nebraska is NOT a community property state, but rather an equitable distribution state. That means that the court will seek to divide property in a manner that is fair and equitable to the parties. Often that means that the property is split evenly, but that is not required under Nebraska law, and often doesn’t happen that way. Our goal is to help you make the best possible financial decisions for yourself and for your family moving forward. We strongly encourage you to speak to an Omaha divorce and family law attorney about your property division.

While going through a separation or divorce, it is important to receive a financial agreement that is equitable and takes into consideration your current circumstances. Division of marital property can be a point of contention between married couples if they are not able to effectively communicate with each other or if they want different things. Nebraska Legal Group can help you figure out the best approach to reaching a settlement. We will protect your rights and financial interests throughout the legal proceedings.


Nebraska is a dual classification state. This means that court will separate property brought into the marriage by the parties from the property acquired during the marriage. Only property acquired during the marriage is subject to equitable distribution.


The court will consider the following factors in any proceeding concerning the division of marital property:

  • The contribution each spouse made toward the marital estate
  • The current and future economic status of the spouses
  • The duration and the marriage
  • The child custody arrangements of minor children

"I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He fought to great extent for me and my daughter and there are just no words to thank him enough. I would highly recommend attorney Todd Engleman to anyone who needs a family law attorney." - B.B. Nebraska "Chris was amazing. He was very patient with me during this year-plus battle. I would get pretty discouraged and down while going back and forth with my ex, and he kept me in check with my emotions. He always helped me see the positive end result. I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out. I found out today that everything is finalized, so it’s a very good day. I can’t thank him enough. " - M.W. Nebraska "This is a rock star attorney! Mr. Crum did such a fantastic job with my case. I can't really do him 'justice' in a sort review. He was extremely professional, brilliant, sharp, quick, and totally on top of his game... and on top of the case. If you absolutely, positively NEED it done right, I personally wouldn't trust anyone BUT David Crum." - David Werth, Business owner and entrepreneur
