When You File For Divorce
To file for divorce in the State of Oklahoma, you must have been a resident of the state for at least six months. You must have lived in the county in which you file for at least 30 days.
The first step is the filing of the divorce petition. Even if you and your soon-to-be-ex are generally in agreement about the various issues, it is extremely important that this step of the process is done correctly. At our firm, we provide legal representation for uncontested divorce. No matter whether you are having an amicable divorce or you expect that every detail will be challenged, you do need a qualified and experienced lawyer to assist you - your rights and interests absolutely must be protected.
Why sacrifice any of your assets or time with your children that you have a right to retain? We will carefully evaluate your situation and advise you of what you have a right to keep, and about any issues surrounding property division, child custody, child support and spousal support.
Six Months Before You Can Remarry
Our state has the unusual law in which you cannot remarry for 6 months after divorce, unless your former spouse has passed away. If you are planning to remarry, there are restrictions under state law that could be a problem, and we can advise you about these critical details so you can plan for the future.
The legal team at our firm is very familiar with all matters of family law and divorce, and is ready to help you through the process. You have specific goals in your divorce, and our duty to you is to pursue those objectives. You deserve the level of service our firm provides and we urge you to get in touch with us at once if you are planning to divorce.
