How Is Spousal Support Determined In Nebraska?

If you need an Omaha spousal support lawyer, contact Higgins Law at 402-933-7600 to schedule a consultation.

Spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance or alimony, is calculated differently from child support. The court will consider several factors in determining whether spousal support should be awarded and in what amount. Factors such as length of marriage, financial contribution of each spouse, forgone education or employment opportunities, and the earning potential of each party will be considered.

Whether you are seeking alimony or resisting its award, your attorney must present effective, well-reasoned arguments as to why such support is necessary — or not. Count on Higgins Law to develop a strong case strategy after thoroughly investigating your situation.
