Omaha, Nebraska Spousal Support Attorneys in Douglas County

What is Spousal Support in Douglas County in Omaha, Nebraska? 

In a lot of divorce matters, spousal support is a big focal point. This is particularly true when one spouse has been a stay-at-home parent and has not worked in recent years. While there are no specific guidelines or requirements for spousal support in Nebraska, that doesn’t mean that spouses are not entitled to seek it. However, in order for a court to award spousal support to the requesting party, they must demonstrate the need of financial support and that the other spouse is capable of paying.

It is vital that you have an experienced lawyer on your side who understands the law and will zealously work to protect your interests. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we represent clients throughout Douglas County from our office in Omaha, Nebraska in all types of spousal support matters. No matter which side of the case you are on, we are committed to doing everything in our power to secure the most favorable possible result on your behalf.

Spousal Support in Douglas County, Nebraska in Omaha

According to Nebraska divorce laws, either party may request and subsequently be awarded spousal support. This relies on a finding that the party that is seeking spousal support is not able to support themselves and lacks the appropriate property to provide for their own needs; or that the party that is seeking spousal maintenance is the guardian of a child whose condition is such that it would be inappropriate for that party to seek outside employment.

Some of the factors that Nebraska courts may consider when determining spousal support include:

  • The time necessary for the spouse seeking support to acquire employment or seek education without interfering with the needs of the couple’s children

  • The comparative earning capacity of each spouse

  • The standard of living established during the marriage

  • The obligations and assets of the marriage, both separate and marital

  • The duration of the marriage

  • The age, physical and mental condition of the spouse seeking support

  • The ability of the supporting spouse to meet both his needs and the needs of the spouse seeking support

The order establishing spousal support must also determine whether the award is modifiable or non-modifiable. If the award is modifiable, the court can modify the award only upon a showing that the circumstances have changed so considerably as to make the terms unreasonable.
