Divorce is the legal process of ending a marriage. Going through a divorce can be one of the most painful and confusing experiences of a person’s life. If your marriage is ending, it is important to have a compassionate and experienced advocate on your side who can guide you through this challenging time while fighting for your best interest.

Filing Requirements in Oklahoma

In order to file for divorce in Oklahoma, either you or your spouse must have been a resident of this state for six months and a resident of the county where the divorce will be filed for 30 days.

Types of Divorce

Your divorce will fall into one of two categories: contested or uncontested. If you and your spouse agree on all issues—such as property division, child custody or spousal support—you will be able to proceed with an uncontested divorce.

However, if you disagree on even one issue, your divorce will be considered contested. Depending on the issues that need to be worked out, finalizing a contested divorce can be a lengthy process.

Property Division

Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state. Equitable distribution of property means your marital property must be divided in a manner that is fair, not necessarily equal. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on who gets what, the court will intervene and divide the property after reviewing various factors.

Child Support and Custody

Perhaps the most important facet of a divorce is settling the matters of child support and custody. In any action where minor children are involved, the court will make a decision based on what is in the best interest of the children involved. It is important that you, too, do all that you can to facilitate what is best for your family. Your attorney can help you and your children in making this part of the divorce as smooth as possible.
