Alimony, temporary support or any similar type of payment will be made through the office of the court clerk, then it shall be the duty of the court to transmit such payments to the payee by first class United States Mail, if requested to do so by the payee.

When in the best interests of the child, custody shall be awarded in a way which assures the frequent and continuing contact of the child with both parents.

How Do I Know if I Should File in Oklahoma?
One would typically file for divorce in the state in which he or she or his or her spouse resides. If you have recently moved to a new state and wish to file in that new state, you may have to establish residency prior to filing.
If you are in the military and are stationed on a base outside your residency state, you typically are able to file in that state or in your residency state.
If you are in the military and are stationed overseas, you would typically file in your home residency state.
Can I Use 3StepDivorceTM if I Have Children?
Yes. The system and your documents will address all the issues regarding your children such as, but not limited to; custody arrangements, visitation and time-sharing, child support, and medical coverage.
How Much Are the Oklahoma Filing and/or Court Fees?
The filing and/or court fees are not included in our fee and typically range from $50.00 to $350.00 in total depending on your location of filing and whether or not you have children. The 3StepDivorce service will typically help you yield the lowest filing fee for you because both you and your spouse are in agreement.
How Long Will the Process Take in Oklahoma?
The process takes an average of less than 1 hour to answer the required questions and generate the documents. Once you file your documents with the court according the filing procedures, the length of time will vary depending on the number of cases in front of yours. Each court has only one or just a few Judges, Masters, or Referees to review all the pending cases.
Should I File or Should My Spouse File?
As a rule of thumb, for uncontested divorces, the spouse who really wants the divorce to be finalized typically does the filing.
Where and How Do I File My Documents?
The documents are filed at your local county courthouse in the family law or domestic relations division or department. Inside your account you will receive step-by-step filing procedures.
Can I Mail or Fax My Documents to the Clerk?
Many courts do permit you to mail and/or fax the documents. This will vary from county to county and state to state, so it will be best to check with the clerk at the courthouse when you are ready to file.
Do I Have to Go to Court in Oklahoma?
Depending on your state and your situation, you may or may not have to attend a short hearing. Most of the time when a hearing is required, it only lasts 10-15 minutes and only the filing spouse must attend. The hearing is where you will be granted your divorce and the judge will sign the final judgment or decree.
Do I Have to Also Hire a Lawyer?
3StepDivorce is designed for you to do your own uncontested divorce without hiring a lawyer. You will be acting as your own lawyer and filing for your own divorce. Should you need or desire legal advice or should your divorce become contested, we do suggest you hire the services of a lawyer.
Will My Name Also Be Changed?
The wife has the option to change her name back to her former or maiden name through the 3StepDivorce solution.
When is the Divorce Actually Finalized in Oklahoma?
The divorce is typically finalized when the Judge signs the final judgment or decree. We give a window of 30-90 days from the filing date, but this will vary due to case load at the courthouse and any mandatory waiting periods.

In almost all cases, you file for a divorce in the state where you reside. This means that if you are a resident of Oklahoma, you file in Oklahoma and are governed by Oklahoma's divorce laws even if you were married, for example, in California.
You must meet Oklahoma's residency requirement for an Oklahoma court to have jurisdiction over your divorce.
Oklahoma 3StepDivorce™ works as long as both you and your spouse agree about everything, and both of you are willing to sign the divorce paperwork.
You do not have to sign the papers together, at the same time and place, but the Oklahoma 3StepDivorce™ requires both spouses to sign.
It sure does. The Oklahoma 3StepDivorce™ allows you to address all issues regarding children, including but not limited to, physical and legal custody, visitation and support, care, health insurance and tax deductions.
Thousands of people divorce in Oklahoma every year without hiring a lawyer.
When spouses cannot agree about the terms and conditions of their divorce, they sometimes end up in court where a judge makes decisions for them. This is called a contested divorce, and hiring a lawyer is a good idea in this case.
When an Oklahoma divorce case is uncontested and both parties are willing to sign, (when you and you spouse agree about everything) filing your own divorce is a common choice in order to cut down legal expenses. Read about the advantages of filing your own uncontested divorce in Oklahoma.
The residency requirements for a divorce in Oklahoma are as follows:
Either the Plaintiff or the Defendant must be a resident, "in good faith," of Oklahoma for six months next preceding the filing of petition. This applies to members of the armed services stationed in Oklahoma.
Yes. The divorce paperwork requires a signed authentication that you have been a resident of Oklahoma for at least the past six months.
This is a state law.
Signing false statements is perjury.
If the court requires proof for some reason, typically an Oklahoma driver's license or state identification is sufficient. An affidavit of a corroborating witness testifying about your residency also works.
Your spouse does not need to live in Oklahoma to use 3StepDivorce™. After you have printed all the divorce paperwork, you simply mail the documents to your spouse and he or she signs them. After your spouse returns them, you file in your local county court.
Very often divorcing spouses live in different states.
The grounds for divorce in Oklahoma are as follows:
No Fault: incompatibility.
Fault: 1) abandonment, 2) adultery, 3) Impotency, 4) wife pregnant at the time of marriage by another man, 5) extreme cruelty, 6) fraudulent contract, 7) habitual drunkenness, 8) gross neglect of duty, 9) imprisonment of the other party under a sentence for the commission of a felony, 10) insanity for a period of five years.
Once the divorce paperwork has been filed in court, it usually takes 30 to 90 days for a divorce to be final. The start to finish time of the divorce may vary depending on the caseload of the court and the availability of judges to sign the final Decree.
3StepDivorce™ saves time because all lengthy delivery times are eliminated when you print your documents from your computer. You control revisions and reprintings as necessary.
In Oklahoma, a divorce hearing is typically required and especially if you and your spouse have children. If there are children involved, a short hearing, generally about 15 minutes, gives the court an opportunity to make certain that you understand the parameters of custody, visitation and support that are ordered as part of your divorce.
If there are no children, the process in very streamlined. Since you and your spouse are in agreement, there is nothing for the court to decide. All you must do is provide a brief testimony of the contents of your paperwork. Learn more about divorce hearings in Oklahoma
There is a six-month mandatory waiting period in Oklahoma.
Yes. 3StepDivorce™ includes a protocol for the wife to take back her former or birth name as part of the filing. It is easier to effect a name change during the divorce rather than after the divorce is finalized. Read more about a name change during a divorce in Oklahoma.
Separate and marital property and debt is identified and addressed in your 3StepDivorce™ account. A series of questions itemizes property and debt, dividing and allocating both according to what you and your spouse have agreed to. The answers become part of the divorce documents, so it is clear to you, your spouse and the court how assets and liabilities have been divided.
Yes. You answer a few questions dealing with individual retirement accounts. You have the option of waiving rights to each other's account(s), or dividing any marital portion of an account by a specific percentage or a dollar amount.
Once again, a few questions inside your account deal with the disposition of the marital home. All possible scenarios are covered -- sale, planned sale, transfer from one spouse to the other, and co-ownership.
A few questions in your account deal with temporary or permanent spousal support. Rights to spousal support may be waived, or a couple can agree to a specific amount for a set period of time. These questions define and limit the parameters of the desired spousal support, which often terminates upon remarriage or cohabitation.
Oklahoma requires that a support order be put in place for all minor children.
3StepDivorce™ provides the Oklahoma Child Support Guideline Worksheet, so you can easily calculate the state's recommendation for monthly support, but you have the option of taking these recommendations under advisement. The courts realize that you and your spouse know your situation better than they do, so they may approve any reasonable support amount, even if it is different from the one on the state worksheet.
We provide Oklahoma Child Support Worksheets inside your account. These worksheets make it very easy to calculate a monthly support amount. The support calculation is based on a number of variables, but the primary one is income.
Once you have calculated the amount, you and your spouse decide if you want to deviate from it and the reasons for doing so.
Yes. Once you and your spouse agree to a monthly child support amount, a judge reviews your decision. He or she will accept it if it seems reasonable. However, if it seems too high or too low, the judge will want an explanation why the two of you came to amount so much at variance from the state guidelines. Your explanation and reasons for it determine whether or not the judge accepts your proposed child support amount.
In Oklahoma, courts may consider the following deviation factors: 1) The medical and dental insurance premiums of the child. 2) In cases of split custody, where each parent is awarded custody of at least one of the children, the parent with the larger obligation shall pay the parent with the smaller obligation the difference between the two amounts. 3) Child care expenses shall be added to the base support obligation. 4) "By order of the court or by agreement of the parties monthly contributions for medical, transportation or other costs may be added to the base monthly child support obligation."
Yes. Child support can be modified based on a change in circumstances. In Oklahoma, a change in circumstances means "a significant change in circumstances," generally, changes "not considered when the original judgment was entered" that are "permanent and substantial" and/or "affect one's current standard of living."
Yes. Child custody arrangements can be modified when, for example, they break down because of the conduct of one of the former spouses.
Yes. The terms and conditions of both sole and joint/shared custody are defined by you and your spouse.
Yes. You can either use a standard schedule that we provide in your account, or you can use our option to customize your own.
Yes. Some of the divorce papers need to be notarized. The step-by-step filing instructions explain who signs what and whether a particular document needs to be notarized. The documents requiring notarization contain notary clauses below individual signature lines.
No. If desired, each of you may sign and/or notarize a document at a different time and/or place.
As mentioned, very frequently spouses sign and notarize the documents at different times and places because they live apart in different states. This happens often, for example, when one of them has moved or is in the military.
In Oklahoma, the divorce papers are filed in the District Court, ______________ County, which is the local county courthouse, where the Domestic Relations or Family Law department accepts the divorce filing. The divorce documents are submitted to the Clerk of the Courts. You pay a filing fee, and the clerk assigns the case a case number. Here are some quick tips for filing your Oklahoma divorce papers.
The fee is about $140. If you want to know the exact amount, you can call the courthouse and ask.
Filing fees underwrite the cost of the court system, but in the case of indigent petitioners these fees may be waived.
Normally, an indigent petitioner completes a very short form at the time of filing. This form asks the court to waive the fees because of financial hardship.
Yes. If you have signed up but not filed any divorce papers, then nothing must be done. If you have initiated the action by filing the Petition for Dissolution, your case can be dismissed by petitioning the court to do so. Normally, this can only be done by the filing spouse and must be done in writing.
Often the clerk of the court can help a person remove a case from the court docket.
