Top 5 Oklahoma Divorce Laws

The top 5 things everyone should know about Oklahoma divorce laws.


Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state, meaning if a spouse obtained a piece of property before the marriage, or if the property was given solely to them, then the property is kept by that spouse.

Marital or shared property, however, is distributed between the spouses based on what is deemed fair. When distributing the martial property, the courts consider the following factors including, but not limited to:

-Which spouse is has custody of the children
-The way the property was held
-The time and manner the property was acquired.

Marital misconduct or fault is not a factor considered during the property distribution. But upon the first court hearing in the divorce, any changes to the property insurance, damaging the property, or selling the property is prohibited by a court injunction.
