How Property Is Divided in Divorce
Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state, which means that instead of a 50/50 split, the property will be divided in a way which seems fair and equal. If you and your spouse are going through an uncontested divorce, you may be able to make a decision that you both can agree on which we can then put in a proposed divorce order for the judge. However, in a contested divorce which goes to trial, the court will divide the property based on Oklahoma's equitable division laws.
Marital property, which is property acquired during the marriage, may include:
- Family home
- Vacation home
- Other real estates
- Saving accounts
- Expensive artwork
