Divorce Proceedings and Settlements in Oklahoma
Divorce is never easy. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, we guide you through every step of the process.
In a contested divorce, spouses cannot agree on key issues such as child custody, division of assets, or alimony. This leads to court involvement, where the judge makes final decisions. The process involves filing a verified Petition for Divorce, going through discovery, and waiting for a court date. The court decides on child custody, division of assets, and alimony based on what it considers fair. Costs and duration depend on the case complexity.
In contrast, an uncontested divorce occurs when spouses agree on all key issues without going to court. This includes child custody, asset division, and alimony, if applicable. The process involves filing a verified Petition for Divorce, drafting a decree based on the agreed terms, and presenting it to the court for approval. The court grants the divorce after approving the terms. An uncontested divorce is typically less time-consuming and costly compared to a contested one.
It's important to recognize that the specifics of each case vary greatly. This is why it's advisable to consult with an experienced family law attorney to better understand which pathway is best for you based on the unique circumstances of your case.

Child Support in Oklahoma
In Oklahoma, child support refers to the financial support provided by one parent to the other for the care and upbringing of their child(ren) when the parents are separated, divorced, or unmarried. The key processes related to child support in Oklahoma include determining child custody, calculating support payments, requesting modifications, and enforcing support orders. When determining child custody, the court considers factors such as the child's best interests, parents' income, and time spent with the child.
Support payments are calculated based on the Oklahoma Child Support Guidelines, which consider factors like parents' income, number of children, and additional expenses.
