Divorce is one of the most difficult life circumstances to go through. It is often a painful experience that leads to more questions. In situations of a summary divorce there are eligibility requirements in Oklahoma that must be met. The terms “simple divorce” is sometimes used. For some couples, marriages dissolve for numbers of reasons. That might include finances, children, property allocations, and the list goes on. Disputes are heightened the longer the marriage continues if those disputes are not handled.
With a summary divorce it can be a simpler process because there are not as many disputes to go through or experience. In some cases, the benefit of a summary divorce can include:
With any divorce there are rights that must be understood for both parties. Even though the divorce may be streamlined there are legal waters to cross. Protecting your rights through a dissolution can aid with helping you through the next steps in life.
Work with an understanding divorce attorney in OKC to help you through the exact requirements of a summary divorce. Normally, eligibility for a summary divorce includes being married for a short period of time, no children are involved, the total property value is low, and total marital assets are low. Even though the eligibility requirements for a summary divorce may be minimal it still requires an understanding of the laws that relate to divorce.
