Property and Liability Division
At Owens Law Office, PC, we understand that you are worried about the stake you have in the property and assets you have accumulated during your marriage. In Oklahoma, marital assets and debt are divided “equitably.” This means that everything you have accumulated during your marriage will be divided in a fair manner, and while division is often 50/50, property may not always be divided equally. Examples of Property and Liabilities Include:
- Debts and Loans
- Real Estate
- Household Items
- Financial Assets
- Family Businesses
- Future Expenses
There is no exact formula for determining what is fair division in a divorce proceeding. The lawyers at Owens Law Office, PC evaluate the assets that you and your spouse have acquired during the marriage and ensure that all assets have been disclosed. We will also work hard to safeguard what is rightly yours, as well as fight to get your fair share of the marital assets.
Let the lawyers at Owens Law Office, PC help you get your fair share of the marital assets and custody of your children. Call us at 405-608-0708 or contact us online for your free and confidential consultation today.
Your Rights as a Parent – Child Custody and Child Support
When parents get divorced, the divorce itself is difficult enough on the children. We realize that divorce is not just about splitting property and assets. Children’s lives are at stake and their hearts are on the line. We will fight to ensure that the Child Custody and Visitation agreement that is part of your divorce decree is written for the best interest of you and your children. Keep in mind, some of the things the Oklahoma court system will want to know are:
- Which parent is more likely to ensure that the non-custodial parent is allowed frequent and continuing contact with the children?
- Who does the child want to live with?
- Where does the child currently live?
- Is one of the parents moving to another state? (If so, that may disrupt the child’s life as he or she knows it with a new school, friends, etc. Often, the court will try to keep the child’s life as stable as possible.)
Children also require financial means to handle all of their needs. There are official guidelines regarding Oklahoma child support, however, not all cases are the same. When a decision is being made about child support, the court will take several things into consideration, including the income and means of both of the parents and the property and assets that each parent owns. As your advocate throughout your divorce proceeding, your lawyer at our office will ensure that the divorce decree includes a fair amount for child support.
