Our family lawyers in OKC are ready to assist you regardless of the reason for wanting or needing a divorce.
At the Law Office of Rhonda Telford Naidu, we have the knowledge and experience you need to help you through this difficult time. We’ll stand up for your rights every step of the way.
Reasons for Divorce
Our experienced divorce lawyers in OKC can help you regardless of why you are seeking a divorce. In Oklahoma, divorces, which are legally referred to as a “dissolution of marriage,” can be either no-fault or fault-based.
No-fault divorces in Oklahoma City/Tulsa allow you to divorce without having to go into detail about why the marriage ended. A fault-based divorce can be granted for several reasons, though, including:
- Imprisonment for a felony
- Extreme Cruelty
Our family lawyers in OKC can help you sort out your options when it comes to filing for divorce. We’ll help you make a decision that’s right for your needs and situation.
Residency Requirements and Waiting Periods
In Oklahoma, one of the persons filing for divorce must have lived in the state for at least six months. One of the parties also must have lived in the county where you plan to file for a minimum of 30 days. If you have children under age 18, you are required to wait for your final divorce to be granted for three months after you file. You also must wait at least six months after the divorce has been finalized to remarry.
We realize that Oklahoma has some unique laws when it comes to divorce. A divorce attorney OKC residents trust is vital to ensuring your case is resolved quickly. For example, in some situations, the waiting period can be waived. Our family lawyers in OKC can help untangle your legal challenges so you get the support you are entitled to.
Steps in Filing for Divorce
