In addition to helping Oklahoma clients, I also handle divorce matters for military personnel across the country and around the world.
The Difference Between Equitable Division And Equal Division
Property division is intended to be equitable, not equal. Equal division would imply that everything is simply split in half. While that would be easy, in most cases it wouldn’t be fair.
Equitable division means fair division. Ideally, it means that you walk away from your marriage with what is rightfully yours. This refers not only to the division of marital assets but also to the division of marital debts.
Divorce And Property Division Are Not Separate Matters
Property division is intricately tied to all other aspects of divorce. It cannot be separated out and looked at without looking at other matters, such as child custody and alimony.
For example, if you are seeking custody of your children, you may also want to keep the house to raise them in. If you are willing to give your spouse a larger share of your savings account, your spouse may be willing to forego alimony. My role is to help you see the big picture and provide you the guidance you need to reach an outcome that is right for you.
Standing By Your Side When Your Case Gets Tough
You may be able to reach a property division settlement by working amicably with your spouse. But there are other times when negotiation only takes you so far.
When cases turn rough, I have the experience to get results. I have been doing this for over 25 years. I know my way around the courtroom. I know the steps to take to win battles and reach outcomes that make sense.
