When is Spousal Support or Alimony Awarded in Nebraska?

A Nebraska Court will grant alimony as may be reasonable, having regard for the circumstances of the parties, duration of the marriage, a history of the contributions to the marriage by each party, including contributions to the care and education of the children, and interruption of personal careers or educational opportunities, and the ability of the supported party to engage in gainful employment without interfering with the interests of any minor children in the custody of such party. The purpose of alimony is to provide for the continued maintenance or support of one party by the other given their relative economic circumstances. (Nebraska Revised Statutes Chapter 42 Section 365)
