Oklahoma is not a community property state. This means that during divorce, assets and debts are not required to be divided 50-50. Instead, marital property may be divided in any way that is deemed by the court to be fair.
Because property division does not adhere to a cut-and-dry formula, it is important to have a skilled legal advocate who can uphold your financial interests and pursue your goals.
With more than 20 years of combined experience, the legal team at The Law Office of Joseph Ellis Thompson, PLLC, has the knowledge you seek. We are well equipped to help clients create unique property division agreements with particular objectives, such as dividing a jointly owned company in a way that keeps the business running.
