The benefits of legal assistance when divorcing in Nebraska

Divorce is always an uncomfortable topic, whether you are getting a divorce, hearing about a divorce or considering divorce. Unfortunately, we have seen how these uncomfortable feelings can prevent those divorcing in Nebraska from seeking legal assistance.

In many cases, these individuals do not want to talk about their issues. Instead, they just want to get the process over and done.The unfortunate thing about this approach is that you may leave yourself open and completely unprotected throughout your divorce.

Some of the possible consequences associated with the lack of attorney guidance include:

  • An unfair marital property division
  • Loss of child custody or visitation
  • Loss of spousal support
  • Inadequate child support

The family courts in Nebraska do the best they can to make divorcing fair for all involved parties. However, these authorities may not know many of the most important elements of your personal situation.

When you are able to overcome your hesitance to discuss your divorce with a family law attorney, you will experience many benefits of legal representation, including:

  • Objective yet compassionate counseling
  • Informed advice about your options in property division, child support, child custody and alimony
  • Someone to handle the paperwork for you
  • An advocate that can help you focus on your future
  • Improved knowledge of the state's divorce laws

An added benefit that you may find surprising involves changing the way you feel once you begin opening up to an objective listener about your difficult divorce.

Although we are not therapists, lawyers do listen well and are always ready to offer you a positive perspective about your divorce and your life going forward. Read more about getting a divorce in our state by visiting our firm's legal website.
