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.
