Will I get alimony?

Under Nebraska law, the purpose of alimony is to provide for the continued maintenance or support of one party by the other when the relative economic circumstances and the other criteria enumerated in this section make it appropriate. Except as otherwise agreed by the parties in writing or by order of the court, alimony orders shall terminate upon the death of either party or the remarriage of the recipient. This means there is no hard and fast rule about how much, how long or even if alimony will be awarded on a temporary or permanent basis. Each case is unique.
