Throughout Ball Morse Lowe’s history, family law has remained one of the most important services we provide to families in McLoud. Family law is usually more complicated than many of the other areas across our firm. We understand that this complexity can be frustrating during these family law cases, and we are here to ease some of the stress you may be feeling. We may not be able to fully get rid this anxiety, but we can guide you through your individual case.
Many people think of child custody and divorce when it comes to family law, but we provide much more than just those two. We also excel in adoption, father’s rights, paternity, and protective orders. No matter the service you are looking for, our family law attorneys have you covered.
Here are brief descriptions for each of the family law services we provide McLoud residents:
Adoption – Adoption can be one of the most important services we provide, as you are looking to add a new member to the family. We understand this process can be exhausting, but the end result makes it all worth it. However, it is important to find a family law attorney that can best help you and your family follow all guidelines pertaining to adoption.
Child Custody – If you and your former spouse are looking to discuss child custody, you have more than likely already done some research regarding the process. We understand that this process is delicate and requires an attention to detail that only some lawyers possess. Our family law attorneys specialize in child custody cases, and we are here to help you and your family through this difficult time.
Divorce – Divorce has many steps that must be followed, with each having the potential to be emotionally exhausting. Not only are divorce cases a lot to deal with, but you will also have to discuss child custody if you have minor children. Our family law attorneys have been through the divorce process numerous times, and we are no strangers to providing clients with excellent solutions.

Protective Orders – If you are the victim of abuse, we understand that it may be difficult to seek help. At Ball Morse Lowe, our protective order attorneys have served countless individuals looking to protect themselves, and we know exactly how to approach these kinds of situations. If you are looking to prevent the abuser from further contact with you, please contact our offices for more information if at all possible.
Paternity – Paternity plays an important role in determining a child’s father. These cases can provide information crucial to granting a child health insurance and child support. If you are the father of a child looking to go through a paternity case, our family law attorneys can help you provide your child with these benefits.
Father’s Rights – Father’s rights, in cases where children were born out of wedlock, can be difficult to determine. If you do not have a proper court order in place, it can be difficult for you to schedule visitation time with your children. We understand how frustrating this process can be, and our family law attorneys are here to help you through this challenging time.
In the intricate landscape of Oklahoma family law, the right to appeal serves as a cornerstone in upholding justice and fairness in judicial decisions. An appeal provides a procedural avenue for parties who believe that the trial court's decision in their family law case was tainted by legal errors, an abuse of judicial discretion, or a verdict unsupported by the presented evidence. The scope of family law matters eligible for appeal is extensive, covering various critical aspects of familial relationships and obligations.
Divorce Decisions – Many family law appeals revolve around disputes stemming from divorce proceedings. These disputes may involve contested decisions regarding the equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, the allocation of spousal support (alimony), and other essential components of the divorce decree. Parties may pursue an appeal if they argue that these decisions were based on legal misinterpretations or factual inaccuracies.
Child Custody and Visitation – The welfare of children takes precedence in family law, often leading to appellate scrutiny of custody and visitation rulings. Appeals in this realm frequently challenge the trial court's determinations, asserting that they failed to adequately consider the best interests of the child or were grounded in incorrect legal standards.
Child Support – Another critical area of contention involves the calculation of child support payments. Appellants may contend that the trial court deviated from established guidelines without justification or that its assessment of financial evidence was flawed, warranting appellate intervention.
Adoption – Navigating the complexities of adoption can lead to appeals concerning decisions related to parental rights termination or adoption finalization. Such appeals may argue that the trial court overlooked vital evidence or failed to adhere to legal standards governing the adoption process.
Paternity – Disputes over paternity can give rise to appeals challenging the legal and procedural bases of the trial court's findings. These appeals may have significant implications for custody, visitation, and child support arrangements.
Protective Orders – Decisions concerning protective orders in cases of domestic violence or harassment fall within the purview of appellate review. Appeals in this area often assert that the trial court's decision was at odds with the protective aims of the law or failed to consider pertinent evidence.
Enforcement and Modification Orders – Orders enforcing or modifying existing family law judgments, whether related to custody, visitation, child support, or alimony, are subject to appellate scrutiny. Appellants may argue that the trial court erred by ignoring new evidence, making erroneous findings, or misapplying the law.
The significance of appellate review cannot be overstated in upholding justice and legal correctness in family law matters. Given the complexity of these issues and the stringent procedural rules governing appeals, parties considering this legal recourse are strongly advised to seek the counsel of skilled attorneys with expertise in Oklahoma family law appeals. Professional guidance is invaluable in navigating the appellate process, articulating legal arguments effectively, and advocating for the desired outcome.
In this second section, we are going to guide you through estate plans and how they work. Our estate planning attorneys have dealt with all kinds of estate plans, and we know how important it is to create the right plan for you and your family. If you seek any of the services provided below, consult with a Ball Morse Lowe estate planning attorney!
Estate Planning – Creating an estate plan is crucial if you are looking to protect both your family and assets following your passing. With the right estate plan in place, you can make this process simple for your loved ones. At Ball Morse Lowe, we provide each client with the tools they need to create an effective estate plan. More importantly, we help clients follow all estate planning guidelines, so their plans are effective after their death.
Elder Law – Elder law works in combination with estate plans, as it is the education provided to senior citizens on how to handle finances later in life. Here at Ball Morse Lowe, our clients may not be fully prepared for this stage of life, but we are devoted to helping them get there. If you are a senior citizen living in McLoud, please contact us if you have any questions about elder law!
Probate – Probate, as many already know if they have been through it, is not a pleasant experience. All of your assets and beneficiaries are at the discretion of the state of Oklahoma, and they are more than likely not going to distribute these assets how you would prefer. Probate can be avoided with certain estate plans, but sometimes avoiding probate is not possible. Our probate attorneys at Ball Morse Lowe understand this, and we are here to help families through this trying time.
Wills and Trusts – If you have a basic understanding of estate planning, you have more than likely heard of wills and trusts. Wills are legal documents that include information who your beneficiaries are, how you would like to distribute your assets, and can even include who you selected as your minor children’s guardian should you pass away. Trusts also provide information on your beneficiaries and your assets, but these estate plans can also entirely avoid probate.
Cohabitation Agreements – Creating a cohabitation agreement may seem confusing at first, but with the right estate planning attorney, this process can be quite simple. These agreements serve as a legal contract between you and your partner, explaining how you wish to handle financial matters during the relationship, as well as how assets are split following a potential break-up. If you and your partner are curious about these agreements and want to avoid marriage, please contact our estate planning offices today.
Business law matters can vary in complication, and if you are not a business owner or are new to the entrepreneur experience, you may not fully understand each of these services right away. We want to assure you that you are not alone through this experience, as our business law lawyers are here to guide you every step of the way.
Business Litigation – Litigation, even at its simplest, can be an extremely confusing ordeal if you are not properly equipped for it. These issues can be sudden, but it is possible to come prepared. Our business law attorneys can assist you with any business litigation matter, including contract and real estate disputes, contract breaches, professional negligence, probate litigation, fraud claims, and more.
Entity Formation – Creating a company comes with its share of ups and downs, but we know it can also be an exciting time. You are looking to create a business from the ground up, and we are here to help make this process as smooth as possible. If you are looking to create a company, we recommend hiring a business law attorney rather than doing so on your own.
Succession Planning – Following a period of success for your company, you may be thinking it is time to pass the torch to a new successor, and you may have the right person in mind for the job. Many forget that it isn’t as simple as telling this successor they own the company now, it requires a lot of legal work to be done. We recommend combining your power with a business law attorney to find a solution in the best interest for your company.
Acquisitions – Buying or selling a business can be exciting, but like any business legal matter, it can make or break a business. If you are the buyer in this transaction, you must create all necessary paperwork for this process. If you are the seller, it is crucial you negotiate a reasonable price for the buyer. We understand this process is not always amicable, but our business law attorneys are here to make sure you follow all steps correctly.
Mergers and Divestitures – Merging several companies into one business may seem fairly complicated, but with the right business law attorney, you can use this merger to boost your business further than before. Divestitures can also benefit your company greatly, as they are used to dispose of assets you no longer require within a company.
Enlisting a criminal defense attorney in Oklahoma provides a significant advantage. These experienced professionals combine empathy, specialized expertise, and a deep understanding of the complex legal landscape. They handle the intricate nuances of criminal law, empathize with your situation, and provide tailored strategies based on their extensive knowledge of Oklahoma's laws, court procedures, and defense tactics. They assess your case's strengths and weaknesses, navigate the legal system, and negotiate with prosecutors to potentially secure reduced charges or alternative sentencing options, minimizing the impact of criminal accusations on your life. With their support, you have legal representation and a dedicated ally who protects your rights, offers invaluable guidance, and wholeheartedly pursues a favorable outcome.
Criminal Expungement – Individuals with a criminal record often seek a fresh start. A criminal expungement in McCloud offers this opportunity by concealing or sealing prior records from public view. This means parties such as landlords and employers won't see your record during background checks.
It's essential to note that a criminal expungement is not a pardon and requires court involvement. Working with a reputable McLoud law firm like Ball Morse Lowe increases your chances of success in this process. While eligibility varies, tailored advice from our attorneys ensures the best possible outcome. Contact us today at 405.701.5355 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for personalized assistance.

We’ve created a fourth list that addresses potential services you may be looking for. If you are still seeking a service not mentioned in this guide, contact us today for more information.
Product Liability – After purchasing a product, the least you expect it to do is work effectively. We understand that this is not always the case. Even worse, sometimes these defective items prove to be harmful to the consumer, leading the consumer to seek damages for the problems they’ve endured due to the product. If you are seeking damages for a defective and harmful product, our attorneys can help you take this matter to court effectively.
Real Estate – Both commercial and residential real estate owners understand that sometimes legal matters come up that must be addressed in court. Some of these matters can include lease negotiations, fraud, contract breaches, warranty breaches, foreclosure, and more. Each of these matters are unique and have a strict set of guidelines that must followed, making an attorney absolutely crucial throughout this process.
Personal Injury – Receiving an injury due to the negligence of another individual should be taken very seriously. Even if you are not gravely injured, it is important to hold this individual accountable for their actions. Our personal injury attorneys understand the severity of these cases, and we take them very seriously as a result.
Power of Attorney – Selecting an agent to act on your behalf through important decisions, ranging from financial to medical, can be lifesaving in many situations. After the creator of a power of attorney becomes incapacitated and unable to make their own decisions, they will have a plan in place that will provide them the ability to continue making their own decisions in a way. These selected agents following rules laid out by the now incapacitated individual to make sure they are receiving the care they would choose under normal circumstances.
With over a decade in helping clients through any of the above service areas, we know exactly how these cases work. Each and every case that comes through our doors requires an attention to detail and personalized plan, as we know every client is unique themselves.

I cannot thank Karen Pearson and her team enough for all the support they've shown me throughout my unfortunate divorce. With all the twists and turns thrown at my situation both in my personal life, but also my military career. This team always made me feel as though my case took priority. I will forever be grateful for them and highly recommend either of them to represent you as you drudge through your specific situation. Thank you again to Ball Morse Lowe team for everything you did on my behalf.

I turned to Ball Morse Lowe PLCC when I needed my mother's estate probated in Oklahoma. It involved mineral rights and I live in California and my mother had not lived in OK for over 60 years. I wanted a firm that would do this correctly and be reasonable in cost. Brian Hill was a pleasure to work with. He and his staff were professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They made the experience of probate painless, explained things as we went along, and were clear in their expectation of what they would need from me to move the process forward. I am so glad I found them and appreciate deeply all they accomplished on my behalf.
