Property Division in Oklahoma
Our Norman Divorce Lawyers Can Help You
Property division can be challenging, especially if spouses aren't sure what belongs to who. Any assets or property acquired during a marriage are considered joint property, no matter how much each spouse contributed to acquire it. If you are facing divorce, you need the representation of an experienced Norman divorce lawyer to protect your rights to fair compensation.

Separate Property vs. Marital Property
Assets or real property owned by one spouse before the marriage are generally considered separate property. This is also true of gifts or inheritance acquired during the marriage. However, if the separate property of one spouse increased in value through the efforts of the other spouse, or through income acquired during the marriage, the other spouse may be awarded some compensation for that property.
In this state, a spouse can file a Qualified Domestic Relations Order to receive money from an ex-spouse's pension, retirement plan, or COBRA. Although all marital property must be divided equally under state law, some spouses will try to conceal certain assets, or argue that assets were theirs before the marriage and, therefore, separate property. Our seasoned Norman family law attorney will thoroughly investigate and review your financial assets to protect your right to any property.
