Yukon Divorce Attorney

No one wants to go through the divorce process, but it is an unfortunate reality that in order to end your marriage, you must abide by the divorce laws and procedures in Oklahoma. Navigating this process can be a challenge, and mistakes or oversights could put your future at risk. The best course of action is to contact an experienced Yukon divorce attorney from Inner Vision Legal, who can handle the process for you.

Dissolving Your Marriage in Oklahoma

Like every state, Oklahoma has laws that govern the divorce process. First, there are residency requirements that one spouse must live in Oklahoma for at least six months before requesting a divorce in the state. 

To officially begin the process, you or your spouse must prepare a divorce petition and file it with the proper local court. This petition must include identifying information for you, your spouse, and your children. 

Couples in Oklahoma usually file for divorce on the grounds of incompatibility, also known as no-fault divorce, but fault-based divorces are still allowed. A fault-based divorce is uncommon, but it may be worth pursuing if one spouse’s misconduct could potentially be a factor in other divorce-related issues. It’s always best to discuss your unique situation and legal options with a qualified Yukon divorce attorney before taking action.

Resolving Common Issues in a Yukon Divorce

Oklahoma courts require you and your spouse to resolve several issues related to your marriage before the divorce order is issued. These include: 

  • The equitable division of marital property and assets
  • Spousal support (or alimony)
  • Parenting time and parental responsibilities (child custody)
  • Child support

Often, reaching agreements on these matters takes up the bulk of the divorce process. Even when couples agree right away on most or all issues, it is still wise to seek the assistance of a divorce attorney to review your proposed terms before submitting them to the court. An experienced family law attorney can ensure that your agreements are in line with your rights and Oklahoma law. 

When spouses cannot reach an agreement on these issues, negotiation between their attorneys or even mediation sessions may be required. If an out-of-court agreement is reached with legal help, your attorney can draft your agreement to present to the court. If the court grants it, your agreement will be incorporated into your final divorce order. 

If neither negotiation nor mediation is successful, the court will need to decide any unresolved issues. While this is necessary in some cases, it is generally not preferable. Going to trial requires significant preparation and evidence, and the decision of how your future will unfold will be out of your hands. If you are expecting a contentious divorce, it is important to have an experienced divorce litigator on your side.
