Guthrie, OK asked in Divorce for Oklahoma

Q: I am wanting to get a divorce from my husband after committing adultery.

When I told him about everything and asked for a divorce we agreed to just take our own belongings. Now he's telling people he wants to press charges on me for adultery and take everything I own. I want to know if he could since he doesn't have any proof except for my word. Also if he doesn't decide to do that would we still file under at fault or no contest since we just want our own possessions? We don't have children or anything with both our names on it, so it is clear who owns what.

A: District attorneys rarely if ever file charges against folks for adultery in Oklahoma. You should hire an attorney and have him/her file a petition for dissolution. Your case appears to be a simple matter and a good attorney can guide you through the process thus easing your concerns about your past acts.
