Commonly Asked Questions:

What is the Difference Between Contested & Uncontested Divorce?

A divorce is described as "contested" or "uncontested" based on whether or not both spouses are able to come to an agreement on all major issues prior to going to court.

Some of the primary differences between the two include:

  • An uncontested divorce typically moves through the court system more quickly than a contested divorce will
  • In a contested divorce it is ultimately the judge who makes the final decisions on division of assets, custody, etc.
  • Neither party is able to appeal the outcome of an uncontested divorce because both parties agreed to the terms ahead of time

One way of reaching an agreement on a previously contested divorce is by hiring a lawyer who can help you work through the disagreements and come to a fair resolution.

Is Nebraska a 50/50 Divorce State?

No. In Nebraska assets will be divided under what is known as the "equitable distribution policy." This means that a judge will divide your marital property based on each spouse's contributions to the marriage, as well as their earning potential after the divorce.
