Lawyers Helping Families Move Forward
The term "family law" includes a wide range of legal issues dealing with families. However, a majority of those issues emanate from divorce. Our attorneys regularly represent men and women dealing with the financial, emotional and legal issues associated with the dissolution of a marriage:
At Copple, Rockey, McKeever & Schlecht P.C., L.L.O., we are committed to helping families going through times of transition. Whether drafting a prenuptial agreement for a couple entering into a marriage, handling a divorce matter, or dealing with the modification of a child support or custody order, our attorneys focus on obtaining the best possible outcomes for our clients.
- Legal separation
- Child custody
- Child support
- Parenting plans
- Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO)
- Grandparents' rights
Our ability to leverage our business and litigation experience allows us to effectively handle the complex issues that arise when a divorce involves significant assets, family owned or closely held businesses, or commingled assets. In addition, we are dedicated to assisting families dealing with the complex issues associated with child custody, child support, and spousal support or alimony. We have helped clients obtain modifications of child support orders, as well as register foreign judgments.
Equitable Distribution of Property
In Nebraska, marital assets are divided equitably. Therefore, we work with accountants, business valuation experts, and real estate experts to help us determine the value of assets. Primary to making property distribution decisions is determining what constitutes marital and separate property.
Property that is separately owned, was owned prior to the marriage, or was acquired through inheritance is often considered separate and not part of the marital estate. In working through property distribution issues, we strive to help our clients understand any tax implications associated with the marital settlement agreement.
