Love and marriage by the numbers in Nebraska

USA TODAY published two articles by 24/7 Wall Street that took a deep dive into U.S. Census data to understand current national and state patterns of marriage and divorce. The author provides the figure that each year, Americans file over 1 million divorce petitions. Yet, the rate of divorce in 2017 had dropped to 2.9 divorces of every 1,000 persons.

Introduction to Nebraska child support guidelines

At our law firm, we represent Nebraska parents in legal matters related to child support. For example, child support must be addressed in divorces with children as well as in disputes between unmarried parents. We also represent parents requesting the modification of previous child support orders. These modifications become necessary upon a change of circumstances — be it a change of income, parenting time or the birth of subsequent children.

Legal standards fairly traditional for Nebraska alimony awards

At our law firm, we provide advice and advocacy to our divorce clients in matters of alimony, also called spousal support or maintenance. Nebraska law treats alimony, meaning the payment of support from one former spouse to the other, in a traditional manner that gives a judge fairly broad discretion to fashion a reasonable spousal support award

Complications In Gray Divorce

You look across the table at your spouse of over 40 years. You've raised children together, traveled together, been through hard times together. For a while, though, something hasn't felt right. You're not the person you once were, and the comfort you used to feel just isn't there anymore. Could it be, you wonder? Could your marriage have really run its course?

One month remains to take advantage of U.S. alimony tax deduction

After 75 years, federal tax reform has done away with the deductibility of alimony payments for the paying ex-spouse. In addition, the recipient of alimony, also sometimes called spousal support or spousal maintenance, will no longer have to pay income taxes on alimony received.
