Overview of Divorce Law in Oklahoma

Oklahoma law requires that, when a court grants a divorce, the court must determine how property is divided, what rights each spouse has regarding the children, who must pay child support, and how much child support is to be paid. Even if both spouses agree on all of these details, there are certain legal requirements that govern how a divorce decree is to be entered. Divorce Law is the area of law that deals with these requirements.
