Uncontested divorce in Nebraska

Each Nebraska couple can choose the way of ending their marriage, filing for either a contested or uncontested divorce. Here is what you need to know about each one before making a decision:

  • Contested dissolution. When spouses want to split up but find it impossible to agree on some major issues, their case might be subjected to a few hearings in front of a judge. The court will investigate their case and make decisions on the debatable aspects. The divorcees have to hire lawyers to represent them in court and will have to pay hefty fees for their services.
  • Uncontested divorce. If you are on good terms with your spouse and reached a consensus about important aspects of your marriage dissolution, this is a perfect option for you. In this case, you may not even need to hire a lawyer and should attend only one hearing to finalize your dissolution. That is why, nowadays, more and more people are choosing this option rather to save their time, money, and nerves.

If you qualify for an uncontested divorce, and do not plan on hiring an attorney, get ready to dealing with the paperwork on your own. The necessary divorce papers for Nebraska residents may differ from case to case, depending on multiple factors, such as the presence of minor kids or even the county where you file.

Getting a divorce in Nebraska with a child

Ending a marriage, couples with children have to take a few things into consideration:

  • As in many other states, parents can be granted sole or joint as well as legal and/or physical custody in Nebraska.
  • Parents in this state have to develop and submit the parenting plan with the court for a review. However, a court can overrule some of the decisions parents made if it is believed to be in the best interests of kids.
  • While making a decision on custody, the judges take into account the home environment of each spouse, their work schedule, relationships with the child and each other, any history of abuse, etc.
  • Nebraska courts also consider the child’s wishes when granting custody.
