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

Todd is an incredible attorney. I’m not sure I will ever be able to thank him enough for what he has done for my daughter and I through and even after my divorce. He explains everything throughout the process and is a truly genuine person. I have already recommend him to friends and family and continue to recommend him to anyone that needs a great family attorney.

Decades of successful experience is what you need when trying to navigate such a tumultuous time in life. Nobody wants to go through a divorce, but it pays to have someone you can trust looking out for you and your interests.

I would highly recommend Chris Pomerleau for a family lawyer. He was very detailed on explaining every step of the way. He always kept me informed. There are no words that can describe what it was like to find a lawyer that took my best interest in all he did. Chris is not my first lawyer and I would use him again if needed. The best family lawyer out there.

Greg Lake is an attorney I would recommend without hesitation to anyone facing a divorce case. He really listens to his clients, which I think is one of the most important things in a lawyer, and he stays focused on what is really important in your case. Highly recommended!

I was fortunate enough to have Megan Spomer take my case in the pursuit of the custody of my daughter. I was lost, confused, and didn’t know where to start. I thought all was lost… till I meet with Megan. She picked me up, gave me support, and confidence. Within months I had full custody of my daughter and without Megan it would have never been possible I thank you I praise you Megan Spomer. If your a man who does right by his children Megan is the attorney for you!!!
