CONSIDERING A DIVORCE IN NEBRASKA?

When you decide to end a marriage in Nebraska, the no-fault is declaring the marriage as irretrievably broken. In filing for divorce, the first thing you need to decide is whether you want to hire and attorney, or file on your own, Pro Se.

A spouse's Complaint for Dissolution must state the desire relief, such as child custody (if you have minor children) and the distribution of property and debt and other related issues. These issues warrant a hard look at all your concerns before you decide whether you should file your own divorce. A lot depends if you and your spouse can work together towards an agreement, you may be able to file a pro se divorce and save thousands of dollars, but if you find it difficult to work with your estranged spouse, you may find it easier and less stressful to hire an attorney.

Benefits of Getting a Divorce in Nebraska Without a Lawyer

Doing a Pro Se divorce means you are representing yourself in your divorce case, without hiring a lawyer to file the divorce papers for you. The court procedures that you follow when filing for your own divorce are the same as if you hired a lawyer, only you are the one completing and filing the divorce paperwork with your local courts. 3StepDivorceTM for Montana makes it fast and affordable to complete the required paperwork which is ready for signing and filing.

You should consider both the legal and emotional aspects of divorce. The legal issues are things you and your spouse need to agree to in order to form a fair settlement, the emotional aspect is how you feel about those things you are now making decisions about. If you cannot keep your emotions in check, it is probably best to hire an attorney. You should only consider filing yourself if you and your spouse are getting an uncontested divorce and are in complete agreement.

1. Cost. By going pro se for a divorce you avoid the cost of a divorce attorney. In Nebraska, the average cost for a contested divorce with child custody and support issues will cost on average $15,600, this includes close to $13,000 in attorney's fees. Even an uncontested divorce with legal representation can cost $1,500 to $2,000. By filing for your own divorce, Pro Se, you will pay the court a filing fee of $158 and if you use a document preparation service such as 3StepDivorce.comTM, add on $299 for a total of $457. This is a huge savings from hiring a lawyer in an uncontested situation.

2. Control. When the Pro Se filer sets out to negotiate the terms of settlement, you get to make the decisions; rather than placing that job in the hands of lawyers or the judge. Since Nebraska is a no-fault only state, the Pro Se filer need only state that a marriage is irretrievably broken, which both spouses can often agree about. If you can work together to a fair settlement, you control the time to file as well as the outcome of the finalized divorce.

3. Ease. If you and your spouse agree the marriage is irretrievably broken, the court will likely rule that the marriage is irretrievably broken without a hearing. Once filed, it will take approximately 60 days for the divorce to be final, start to finish; although this will depend on the courts caseload. If one of you disputes that assertion, the court considers all relevant factors, including the circumstances that gave rise to the filing of the Complaint and the prospect of reconciliation, in finding of whether the marriage is irretrievably broken or not. In this case, it may take longer than the 60 days to be final and under this circumstance, the case is no longer uncontested and an lawyer should be consulted.

Deciding to Hire a Lawyer for Your Divorce in Nebraska

In a high net worth marriage, often there may be a complicated marital estate which then decreases the likelihood of an uncontested divorce. In this instance, it may be advisable to contact a lawyer who can advise you of your legal rights.

One of the best ways to find a lawyer Is the word-of-mouth recommendation of a trusted friend or family member who has had experience with divorce. Another resource is Nebraska's Find-a-Lawyer. This website is located here: https://www.nefindalawyer.com and helps people who need a lawyer to find one. The lawyers charge $50 or less for a 30 minute consultation.

You can search lawyers to investigate their active license if they are in good standing, able to practice law, or if the attorney has had any disciplinary action taken against him or her. The Nebraska State Bar Association maintains the website: http://www.nebar.com/ for more resources to search for attorneys.
