Divorce LAW

The lawyers of The Ritchie Law Firm have over 20 years experience in dealing with divorce matters.  The firm handles all manner of divorce cases, from the most complex to the simple waiver divorce situations. 

Oklahoma is a "No Fault" divorce state.  This means that a divorce may be granted on simple grounds of incompatibility rather than having a requirement of cause for a divorce to be granted.

Common issues involved in divorce cases include the division of property, division of debts, child custody, child support and spousal support.

Property Division:  The division of property can involve, cars, houses, real estate, retirement accounts, business ownership interests and much more.  The guiding objective of the court is to do "equity" or "fairness" in the division of property.

Division of Debts:  Again, the guiding objective for the court is to do "equity".  Matters of possession of collateral, ability to pay the debts and origination of the debt are frequent matters of discussion.

Child Custody:  The court's objective is to act in the best interest of the child.  Contested custody matters may get very complex necessitating the assistance of professionals such as child psychologists and doctors. 

Child Support:  Child support is primarily determined based upon statutory child support guidelines established by the legislature.  The basic level of support is determined based on the number of children, income of the parents and insurance and child care costs.
