You probably need to hire an attorney unless your divorce is amicable.If your case involves minor children an attorney is necessary to ensure that your custody and visitation rights are properly established.Fault is proved in Oklahoma by presenting evidence to establish that the opposing party has engaged in and/or committed adultery, abandonment, fraud, cruelty, imprisonment, conviction of a felony, living apart, or others. A parent cannot change a minor child’s last name without express permission or leave of court. Oklahoma has certain requirements that must be met in order for a court to establish the existence of a common law marriage.and whether a marriage is of a long duration such that spousal support may continue indefinitely until death or remarriage or a short-term marriage where spousal support may cut off at the “half the duration of the marriage” mark.In this article we will discuss how the date of separation in a California divorce is determined and what factors the family law court would take the consideration when he or she decides your date of separation.Few areas of California law have gone through more uproar and change than the date of separation in a divorce.It used to be understood that a date of separation occurred when either the husband or the wife did not intend to continue the marriage and either of their actions were consistent with a final breakup in the marital relationship. Section 70 is added to the Family Code, to read: 70.
Oklahoma imposes a 10-day waiting period before a divorce without minor children can be granted.(c) It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this section to abrogate the decisions in In re Marriage of Davis (2015) 61 Cal.4th 846 and In re Marriage of Norviel (2002) 102 Cal.App.4th 1152.” So, in essence, we are kind of back to the way things were before the Marriage of Davis decision.Oklahoma does allow for a divorce to be sought and granted based upon the grounds of adultery, abandonment, fraud, cruelty, imprisonment, conviction of a felony, living apart, and others.However, most divorces are granted on a no-fault basis.Many family law lawyers, judges and our California legislature were not happy with this decision and in 2016, Governor Brown signed SB-1255 under “dissolution of marriage – date of separation.” As of the date this article is updated, SB-1255 is not yet officially the law. (2) The conduct of the spouse is consistent with his or her intent to end the marriage.(b) In determining the date of separation, the court shall take into consideration all relevant evidence.In Oklahoma, there are mandatory proceedings that a party must attend.However, not all cases go to trial nor do they have adversarial proceedings.A divorce is granted upon conclusion of a your case either by trial or by agreement.In most instances you will be have to go to court on at least one occasion.
