I have been separated for over 12 years with my legal wife, which is why I ask, and I really need to take care of this.
You can file for divorce. Best to get a lawyer to help.
Most lawyers will give you a free consultation if you ask for one. We do this all the time, but remember that our time is valuable and you should stay with the people who help you the most.
No. You need a legal action to end your legal relationship as a married couple. If you have no joint debts or assets, this process is fairly simple. The Nebraska Supreme Court offers some pro se forms to help you represent yourself. However, you cannot use those forms if you have issues as to real property, retirement accounts, alimony/support, etc. Best wishes!
