How can an Oklahoma City divorce attorney help me?
Divorce is rarely a simple process, and it becomes even more complicated when the spouses have been married for a long time, have children or have accumulated wealth over the course of their marriage. The most common issues that couples must settle before finalizing a divorce include:
- Child custody. In most cases, both parents want to spend as much time as possible with their children. Amanda Everett understands this, but as your advocate, she works to come up with a child custody arrangement that works for you and advances your child’s best interests. When your child’s safety or welfare requires restrictions on your spouse’s access, she fights aggressively in court to get an appropriate order from the judge.
- Child support. Your divorce should affect your children as little as possible. That’s why each parent must contribute to their children’s support. Amanda Everett fights to secure fair child support agreements and court orders for you.
- Spousal support. Alimony exists so that divorce does not unfairly enrich one spouse while causing financial hardship to the other. The court will award alimony in a lump sum or on an installment basis if it finds the recipient spouse needs financial assistance and the supporting spouse has the means to pay. As your advocate, Ms. Everett fights for support orders that reflect financial reality and put you on the firmest footing for your financial future.
- Division of assets. Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state, which means spouses are entitled to keep their separate property, but the divorce court divides marital assets in a manner it perceives as fair, rather than strictly 50-50. Dividing property can be difficult, especially if you built up those assets together while married or commingled your separate property. Amanda Everett advocates strongly for you, using the discovery process to compel full disclosure as well as the proper identification of assets as separate or marital and the correct valuation of all property in question. She works hard to make sure you get your fair share through a negotiated divorce settlement or litigation in court.
These are all very important issues, which have an enormous impact on your future. As your family law advocate, Amanda Everett helps you set the right goals for the divorce process to achieve the best possible results.
