Oklahoma City Property Division Attorney

In a divorce, many clients focus only on their children, and while the children are the highest priority, great care and attention must be paid to property division or you will not have the financial means to support yourself and your children.

Property division in an Okahoma divorce uses an equitable standard meaning that while a court strives to make the division as close to a 50/50 split as possible, it is not required. This is both for utility and the judge's discretion. First, property division is so complex that rarely will any case be able to truly get a 50/50 split of the property. Even if the division is 50/50 on paper, the parties likely disagree about the valuation of the property such as vehicles, real property, and businesses. If one spouse has been using property against the other, or using property (such as a lake house) to have an affair, the judge has discretion to take that into consideration.

We carefully evaluate all marital property, where the property came from, and how it is best used in the property division to acheive the goals set forth at the start of the divorce process. Caring about the property division does not make you materialistic. It means that you care about your future and making sure that you have the financial means to support yourself and your children.
