Preparing for Divorce
Nov. 3, 2022
Going through a divorce can be a very difficult time. Going through the emotion rigors of a faltering relationship is hard enough, when you add in the legal aspects of a divorce, it only makes things worse. Divorce can make an already troubled relationship become much more adversarial, and make it even downright ugly. The emotion impact aside, there are many important procedure aspects of divorce that you should do in order to get the best results from your separation. One thing that is important is the documents you use to prove what you brought to the table when it comes to marital property. Because Nebraska is not a community property state, marital property is defined as the assets that have been earned together, not through inheritance or property that was owned prior to the marriage, but property that was essentially earned together. This can be hard to determined and the bets way to figure this out is to have proper documentation.
Nobody wants to go through a divorce, and it is not going to be a pleasant experience, but hopefully this list can make it easier for you. In order to get the best possible results from your dissolution case I have listed the documents and information that you should get to move forward with the divorce. If you do not have the documents or cannot find them, then try to figure out a method to retrieve them, and if the document is not applicable and does not apply to you then simply don’t worry about it. This is a list of the documents you should be attempting to gather.
