Nebraska law has introduced a no-fault divorce system that allows a marriage to be dissolved if it is determined that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. If you file an application for dissolution of marriage with the court clerk, you must first present a fully completed certificate of life statistics. A lawsuit filed in the state of Nebraska seeking the dissolution of the marriage must state the reasons for granting it.
If your spouse lives or works in the county where the divorce is filed, the sheriff will receive the subpoena or petition and deliver it to the address indicated in Praecipe. The clerk knows which judge will hear your divorce case and gives the file number. Before you enter a courtroom for a hearing, you should ask the clerk of the district court how you can inform the judge that you are attending a divorce hearing.

This type of representation is helpful if you have limited financial resources, but our lawyers determine whether certain work and cases can be carried out without lawyers. Lawyers are more modest in reducing their fees when household income is less than $20,000 a year, or $1,500 for a family of four.
If your household income is below 125% of the (statutory) federal poverty level and you have little or no assets, you can qualify for our services.
