Divorce in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, divorce is called Dissolution of Marriage. In order to file a divorce petition, you must have been an Oklahoma resident for at least six months.

Divorces are granted based on the following grounds:

  • Abandonment for a period of at least one year
  • Adultery
  • Severe cruelty
  • Fraud
  • Impotency
  • Chronic alcohol abuse
  • Neglect
  • Commission of a felony
  • A divorce decree in another state that does not fully end the Oklahoma marriage
  • Institutionalized insanity for at least five years

Alternatively, you may request a divorce on the grounds of incompatibility, or what is essentially a no-fault basis.

Once the divorce is finalized, the parties are not allowed to remarry anyone else in the state of Oklahoma for six months. The issues that need to be resolved in a divorce include alimony, child custody and visitation, child support, and the division of marital property. Oklahoma divides marital property according to an equitable distribution rule. This means the division will be done according to what the court considers to be fair, but it may not always be equal.
