Nebraska Uncontested Divorce Attorney

Nebraska Uncontested Divorce Attorney

If you and your spouse have been able to come to a complete agreement regarding the division of property and time-sharing with the children, an Omaha uncontested divorce attorney may be your best option. In an uncontested divorce, an attorney is hired to represent one party, and the other party represents him or herself. The attorney will give guidance to the client on the law and how that Court might rule on certain issues and will address numerous issues the client may not think to address—tax consequences of property exchanges, federal law requirements regarding the division of retirement accounts, etc. Ultimately, however, it is up to the client to reach the agreement with his or her spouse. Once a complete agreement has been made, the divorce attorney will prepare the divorce packet memorializing the agreements made between the parties and file all documents with the Court. No appearance before a Judge is required.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE AND MEDIATION

If you and your spouse have reached an agreement on some terms of your divorce, but would like an attorney to help you resolve the remaining issues, another good option can be a Mediated Divorce. In a mediated divorce, however, the attorney acts as a neutral third party who facilitates a settlement based upon his or her understanding of Nebraska law. In a mediation, the attorney usually prepares all paperwork necessary to finalize the divorce.

CAN YOU PREPARE YOUR OWN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE DOCUMENTS?

Every year, couples throughout Nebraska successfully handle their own uncontested divorces. At the same, many couples create even further problems for themselves because of mistakes or oversights they make preparing their own documents or by using online companies who promise a cheap divorce packet. A few things you should consider when deciding whether to handle your own divorce rather than hiring an Omaha uncontested divorce attorney are:

    • The complexity of your divorce – People with few assets and debts have a far better chance of doing this successfully than people with complicated issues, especially involving child custody, spousal support, and real estate and retirement accounts.
    • How well are you getting along? Completing an uncontested divorce packet does require that you and spouse spend some time and effort completing and filing the correct documents. We have certainly seen parties do this successfully. On the other hand, we have also seen many cases that should have settled, that instead fell apart because the parties could not cooperate sufficiently.
    • How much work are you willing to put in? While most courts will provide you with an uncontested packet, there are still many questions you are going to have to figure out how to resolve, as well as determining which documents should be filed in your case.
    • Unforeseen issues – Where we see the most problems in prose uncontested divorces are usually in the areas of taxes, child custody, retirement, how to deal with the marital home, and properly dividing debt. Even divorce packets you obtain from court do not explain how to draft things like enforcement provisions and alternative to returning to court. This means that in some situations, parties are creating problems around issues they do not even know exist.

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.

Ryan McCoy

I have known of Dave and his success in family law for many years. No doubt that he has assembled the best team to bring top notch legal help to the metro. 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.

Alee Guthrie

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!!!
