How Are Assets Divided in a Divorce?

Most people assume that a court will divide all marital assets right down the middle in a divorce, with each party getting exactly half. However, this is not the case in Oklahoma. Oklahoma is an equitable division state, which means the court is not necessarily focused on obtaining a perfect 50/50 split. Although many cases result in a split that is close to even, the goal for Oklahoma divorce courts is to find an asset division plan that is as equitable as possible.

At Hensley and Associates, PLLC, our experienced Tulsa asset division attorneys can work with you to determine a sound strategy and assertive representation for the division of all types of assets and all family law matters.

Marital assets may include:

  • Real property
  • Automobiles
  • Other personal property
  • 401(k)s, other retirement plans, investments, and pension division

Types of Assets in a Divorce in Oklahoma

In a divorce in Oklahoma, assets are typically categorized into two main types: marital assets and separate assets. Understanding these asset classifications is crucial for the equitable division of property during divorce proceedings.

Marital Assets:
Marital assets refer to the assets obtained by either spouse during the marriage and are eligible for fair distribution in a divorce. This category can include a wide range of assets such as:

  • Real Estate: Family homes, vacation properties, rental properties, and land.
  • Personal Property: Furniture, vehicles, electronics, appliances, and other tangible items acquired during the marriage.
  • Financial Assets: Bank accounts, retirement accounts, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds accumulated during the marriage.
  • Business Interests: Ownership stakes in businesses, professional practices, or partnerships established during the marriage.
  • Personal Injury Awards: Compensation received for personal injuries during the marriage, excluding compensation for pain and suffering.

Separate Assets:
Separate assets are not subject to division in a divorce and generally include:

  • Assets Owned Before Marriage: Property and assets acquired by either spouse before the marriage.
  • Inheritance or Gifts: Assets received by either spouse as an inheritance or gift from a third party during the marriage.
  • Personal Injury Awards (Pain and Suffering): Compensation received for pain and suffering from personal injuries during the marriage.

It is important to note that the division of assets can be a complex and contentious process in divorce proceedings. Consulting with an experienced Tulsa asset division lawyer can provide valuable guidance and assistance in ensuring that both marital and separate assets are properly identified, valued, and divided in a fair and equitable manner.
