Abstract

The article reviews Nebraska law governing division of property in divorce cases. The article compares Nebraska law with the rules promoted by the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Family Dissolution: Analysis and Recommendations. The article suggests that the Nebraska equitable division approach is preferable to the ALI approach, but argues that Nebraska law should unambiguously embrace a presumption of equal division subject to equitable considerations.

Keywords: Nebraska, divorce, property, family law, marriage dissolution
