Empowering You Through the Divorce Process
Finding Hope in the Midst of a Challenging Time
When you come to the difficult decision of dissolving your marriage, it can feel like a devastating reality. However, at Garrity Traina, we believe that this can be the beginning of a bright, new future. With our support, you will find the courage to move forward and maybe even find love again.
Prioritizing the Well-Being of Your Children
We genuinely care about the well-being of your entire family, especially when children are involved. You can trust that we will prioritize their needs and peace of mind throughout the process. It’s important to note that under Oklahoma law, there is a mandatory 90-day waiting period from the date the divorce is filed when minor children are involved. While this may initially seem like a hassle, it exists to serve the overall good of everyone involved.
Ensuring the Best Interests of Your Children: Child Custody in Oklahoma
In Oklahoma, both parents have equal entitlement to physical custody of their children, as long as the father signed the birth certificate and the children have lived in Oklahoma for at least six months. When a custody order is filed, the court’s primary concern is the physical, mental, and moral health of the children. There are four types of custody agreements to consider:
- Sole Legal Custody: One parent is granted the right to make legal decisions for the children.
- Joint Legal Custody: Both parents are granted the right to make legal decisions for the children.
- Sole Physical Custody: The children live full-time with one parent, while the other parent has visitation rights.
- Joint Physical Custody: The children split their time between both parents.
Child Support: Ensuring Financial Stability
The calculation of child support in Oklahoma depends on the parents’ income. The court considers various factors when determining the support amount, such as actual monthly income, average monthly income over the past three years, or minimum wage based on a 40-hour workweek. Additionally, the child custody agreement also plays a significant role in determining the amount, particularly if one parent has sole or joint custody.
At Garrity Traina, we are committed to providing expertise and guidance to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family. With our reliable representation and personal approach, you can navigate the complexities of family law with confidence.
