You might have several reasons to consider a legal separation. In some circumstances, legal separation can be a better option than divorce. Some possible reasons a client may seek legal separation may include:

  • The parties not being able to meet the one-year residency requirement for a divorce
  • One party may have a preexisting medical condition and needs to maintain health insurance coverage
  • The parties may want to keep the tax benefits of remaining married
  • The parties cannot afford to separate a jointly owned business
  • One party or both cannot afford to live without some or all of the financial benefits marriage provides
  • The parties may have religious or moral reasons for remaining married

I can help you evaluate your particular situation and guide you through the process that can lead to a successful legal separation. In many ways, legal separation is similar to a divorce.

Consult with an experienced lawyer to discover your options, learn about the benefits and understand the process of pursuing your goals in Nebraska.
