Farming in Nebraska is more than a business; it’s a way of life. Farm owners face unique challenges in the divorce process. From emotional and sentimental attachments to the farm that may have been in the family for generations, to the practicalities of dividing the marital estate which is comprised of complex and non-marital assets, to appropriately identifying true income for purposes of determining child support or alimony, farm divorces require experienced and sophisticated legal counsel.
Several of the unique issues involved in a farm divorce are:
- Identification of the farm or ranch as marital or non-marital property
- Appropriate valuation of various farm assets, including crops (both growing and stored), livestock, equipment and machinery, and farmland
- Examination of the contributions by both spouses to the farm
