Nebraska Divorce Overview & Laws

Where to Start When Getting a Divorce

Deciding to get a divorce entails legally terminating your marital status. Going through a divorce can be challenging and grueling. As Omaha divorce attorneys we use our vast experience to make the legal process of getting divorced as easy as possible for our clients. During the ongoing proceedings, we know that you will probably have plenty of questions and are experiencing many emotions. We have gone through this with many clients and are here for you. We are divorce attorneys who take the counsel part of our jobs very seriously.

Nebraska Divorce Residency Requirements

Under Nebraska laws, the district court has the authority to terminate a marriage if either of the spouses lived in the state for one year just prior to filing the divorce petition. The divorce petition can be filed in a court located in the same county where either party is located. We will address any questions you have if you are concerned about whether or not you satisfy the residency requirements.

  • Cruel and inhumane treatment
  • Abandonment
