Tulsa Separation Attorney
In Oklahoma, a separation or separation decree is where the right to cohabitation has ended, but the man and woman are still legally married. At this point, the couple is considered married and the status is not altered. Divorce is not always the first option individuals wish to consider due to religious or personal reasons. If you have marital issues that are leading you to consider legal separation, we can help.
An action for legal separation may be brought in the county in which either party is a resident at the time of the filing of the petition. The wife or husband may obtain alimony from the other without a divorce, in an action brought for a separation, for any of the causes for which a divorce may be granted. The procedure for obtaining a legal separation agreement through the courts is very similar to the procedure for divorce. Therefore, the need to know and understand your rights in an Oklahoma separation are equally as important as when dealing with an Oklahoma divorce. Our firm is committed to providing clients in the Tulsa area with experienced, compassionate legal representation in separation cases.
