Tax law changes could inspire faster divorces

The tax law enacted in December 2017 could be leading a number of Texas couples into ending their marriages more quickly. Approximately 800,000 American couples seek a divorce each year, and a provision in the law that could make spousal support payments more expensive could produce more filings in 2018. The provision will go into effect in 2019.

Tech industry divorces can be complex

The end of a marriage is always a challenging time for people in Nebraska.

However, the complexities of divorce are not only related to emotions. High asset divorces can be replete with complex financial issues that require significant work to provide proper valuation and ongoing negotiations to secure a fair outcome in a divorce settlement. One sector for a number of complex, high asset divorces has been the tech industry and its start-up culture.

Abuse takes many forms

There are many ways in which Nebraska residents may be abused by a partner or spouse. The most well-known form is physical abuse, which can include hitting, slapping or strangling another person.

This may include actions that cause physical pain to a victim.
