Marriages come to an end for countless reasons. Sometimes one spouse is abusive, adulterous, or otherwise cruel. Frequently, the culprit is a shared feeling of incompatibility. Whatever the cause of your separation, we are here to walk you through the divorce process and give you the support you need to achieve independence.
Alimony & Spousal Support
When determining an appropriate amount of spousal support, or “alimony,” for a divorcing couple, Oklahoma courts consider the length of the marriage, the income of each spouse, each spouse’s job skills, and their ability to support themselves as individuals. If, on the other hand, you and your ex decide to work out an agreement on your own, you can avoid the court from making such a decision for you.
Whether you decide to work with your ex to reach an amicable agreement, or you leave the decision to an Oklahoma divorce court, we are prepared to represent you through negotiations.
In today’s world, raising a family is financially challenging even with two incomes. It is only fitting, then, that both parents should share in the financial responsibility of taking care of their child or children, whether or not they are legally separated. When you work with us, we will help you and your ex work out the details of a fair child support plan.
