  • Skim through the blank forms.
  • Consult the dictionary and Oklahoma Statutes to find out more about any unknown terms.
  • Gather important information, such as the date of marriage and separation, the address and employer of the parties, social security numbers, etc.
  • Spouses should complete the forms with the divorce terms they discussed.
  • Check the answers and correct them before going to the courthouse.
  • Sign the papers and notarize the ones that need notarization.

Filing for
Divorce in
Oklahoma

Steps to Consider

Residency Requirements

Oklahoma Family Law requires that at least one of the spouses seeking divorce meets the state residency requirements. It’s a mandatory condition for all divorces so that the court can have jurisdiction to issue decisions regarding a divorce.

The spouses are state residents if they have lived in Oklahoma for at least six months before commencing the action. If one spouse is in the military, they may file for divorce if they served within the state territory for six months before filing the Petition for Dissolution.

Grounds for Divorce

Oklahoma law provides twelve grounds for divorce, both fault and no-fault. The petitioner has to use one of the following reasons in the Petition:

  • Incompatibility;
  • Adultery;
  • Impotence;
  • Cruelty;
  • Abandonment for one year;
  • A wife was pregnant by another person who was not her spouse;
  • Fraudulent contract;
  • Habitual drunkenness;
  • Neglect to support;
  • Felony conviction and imprisonment;
  • Insanity and institutionalization for five years without a chance for recovery;
  • Getting an invalid divorce decree by a husband or wife outside Oklahoma.
Initial Filing

The petitioner can file for divorce in a district court in the county where they have been living for more than 30 days before taking action. They may also file in the county where the other party has lived for 30 days.

The initial papers that a petitioner must submit to the court clerk are a Petition for Dissolution and Summons or Entry of Appearance, Domestic Relations Cover Sheet, and a proposed divorce decree.

Filing Fees

Each person filing papers for a marriage dissolution must pay a filing fee of approximately $250. There may also be additional fees for paternity determination and copies of the original documents.

If a person cannot afford to cover the court fees, they may apply for a fee waiver by:

  • preparing and filing the Pauper’s Affidavit form
  • providing financial proof of indigency

The costs may be waived entirely or partly or delayed for some period.

Serving the Respondent

After filing the paperwork with the district court, the petitioner must inform the respondent by delivering them copies of the papers. This process is known as “serving” the spouse.

Oklahoma laws generally forbid a petitioner to deliver copies in person. Instead, they need to hire a private process server, pay a deputy sheriff ($50 on average) or use certified mail.

The proof of service, the return receipt, or the acknowledgment of service must be filed with the district clerk.

Waiting Period

Couples with minor children must wait for at least 90 days before the judge can sign a final decree. This period is supposed to be a cooling-off time during which the spouses might resolve their differences and reconcile.

The waiting period is also intended for consulting a family therapist or going through educational seminars concerning divorce effects on children.

The judge might waive the 90-day requirement if both parties agree or there’s a “good cause” such as abandonment or cruelty.

Finalizing a Divorce Case

After the waiting period ends, the spouses need to attend the court hearing and answer questions asked by the judge. After that, the judge will grant the divorce if all papers are in order and the terms are fair and just.

Couples with uncontested divorces can have a copy of their divorce decree the same day as their hearing.

If only a petitioner attends the hearing, they should send a copy of a decree to the other party and leave one for themselves.

Uncontested divorce 
in Oklahoma

Uncontested Divorce in Oklahoma

An uncontested divorce means the couple has resolved their disputes before the court hearing. It also means that they can avoid hiring a divorce lawyer and represent their case independently before a judge.

Couples with amicable divorces must conclude a settlement agreement addressing such issues as property division (assets, debts, real estate, etc.), alimony, child custody, and child support.

A mutual agreement should conform to the following requirements:

  • the parties should divide property in a fair and just manner
  • custody of children should be in their best interests
  • child support should be determined using the state guidelines

An uncontested divorce is a fast and cheap way to end a marriage. It only requires the preparation of legal paperwork, which can be much easier with assistance from Divorce.com. This service helps prepare customized divorce papers, without stress or huge expenses.

Child custody

Getting a Divorce with Children in Oklahoma

Child custody

Oklahoma judges can award different types of custody to one or both parents with minor children. The Court Orders will depend on the children’s best interest without regard to the gender of the parent.

The family court will choose one of the following custody arrangements:

  • Sole physical custody (the child resides with one parent while the other may have visitation rights).
  • Joint physical custody (the children live with each parent according to the agreed schedule).
  • Sole legal custody (all decisions about the child’s well-being are made by one parent).
  • Joint legal custody (parents are equally involved in the decision-making process).

The spouses can request joint custody by submitting a parenting plan. Each parent can come up with an individual plan or file it jointly. The document must include the arrangements about:

  • the child’s residence
  • child support
  • visitation schedule
  • medical costs

The judge will review each parent’s plan and issue a final document based on the spouses’ proposals, with possible corrections to meet the child’s best interests.

Child Support

Child Support

Every underage child has a right to be financially supported by parents, even after their divorce. For this reason, the judge won’t issue a final judgment before resolving child support.

The amount of this payment in Oklahoma is calculated based on the Income Shares Model. It takes into account the combined gross income and the number of kids. If one of the spouses pays alimony, it is deducted from the gross income.

The monthly sum should be enough for such basic expenses as food, housing, education, transportation, clothing, etc.

Minor children will receive financial support until they turn 18 or after graduating from school, if they’re under 20 years old. The court may extend the support if the child is disabled and isn’t self-supported.

Divorce Without a Lawyer in Oklahoma

Divorce Without
a Lawyer
in Oklahoma

Getting a divorce without a lawyer is allowed to all spouses seeking a divorce. However, this option is more suitable for couples without disputes over children or property. So if they can settle the divorce terms between themselves or through mediation, they can save money on legal representation.

Not only are divorce costs lower when a couple chooses to part amicably. They also have more control over the outcome.

The spouses will need to collect and file appropriate court-required papers to ask the judge to issue a divorce decree. Usually, it’s an attorney’s job to gather the documentation. So, if the spouses decide to do it themselves, they might face some difficulties.

Couples who don’t have time to deal with the intricacies of paperwork can use Divorce.com. This service has a straightforward procedure for obtaining court-required papers, which takes a few small steps, such as answering the online questions and submitting them for processing. The packet of documents also includes a detailed filing guide.
