The Legal Landscape of Oklahoma Property Division

Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state, which means that marital property is divided fairly, though not necessarily equally. Several factors are considered during asset and property division, including:

  • The length of the marriage

  • Each spouse's contributions to the marriage, both financial and non-financial

  • The economic circumstances of each spouse

  • Any relevant prenuptial or postnuptial agreements

Our legal professionals at Elton Jenkins Law are well-versed in Oklahoma's property division laws and will ensure you are fully informed of your rights and options.

Division of Retirement Accounts and Benefits

Dividing retirement accounts and benefits can be complicated and fraught with potential tax consequences. We will help you understand the complexities involved in:
