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.
