Divorce is an emotional and challenging ordeal for most couples in Omaha.
For same-sex couples, the challenges can be even greater as it’s not always easy to find legal representation with the necessary experience to understand and solve the most common legal disputes involved.
At the Nebraska Legal Group, we have the specific skills and expertise that can only be acquired from representing LGBT couples in family law disputes. Same-sex marriage was recognized here in 2015 and we have been helping clients in these matters since our launch in 2016.
Our lawyers provide a listening ear and the legal strategy you need to avoid conflict, defend your interests, and obtain the outcome you want to move on with your life after divorce.
Compassionate and Committed Divorce Law Services for the LGBT Community
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals who are married, in common-law relationships, or in civil partnerships from other states face the same issues as other married couples when they separate.
Nebraska domestic relations law covers LGBT marriages but domestic partnerships and civil unions made in other states frequently run into problems here. These issues can be solved with the help of our lawyers.
Providing you meet some basic requirements of residency, you can divorce or get legally separated in Nebraska, regardless of whether you were married here, in another state or in another country.
In any marriage, the most common legal issues with separation are generally:
- Property, asset, and debt division
- Child custody and parenting arrangements
- Child support
- Spousal support (alimony)
Our LGBT divorce law services cover the complete range of possibilities if you are currently going through a separation or planning a divorce. Our attorneys have worked with same-sex couples in collaborative divorces, as well as in mediated and arbitrated divorces.
Where no mutual agreement is possible, we have also represented same-sex partners in trials within the Omaha family court system.
Divorce Services for LGBT Couples
Whether you and your partner have mutually decided to go your separate ways or one party is filing for divorce against the other, attempting to go about it without legal assistance is often inadvisable – even if a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is in place.
Even in amicable separations, agreements need to be drawn up and made legally enforceable or problems can arise later. Our same-sex divorce lawyers can assist with the following divorce services.
