Timothy J. Pickens' answer
You should get your own Oklahoma Family Law attorney and finish out the divorce. You should get the final decree drafted to your desires and have your husband served with the final decree along with a date for presentment, so that he can attend or not. If he fails to attend and you can show good service on him then a default decree is a likely outcome. TJP

Timothy J. Pickens' answer
It would be helpful to know the specifics about your husband's Oklahoma conviction. However, from your information, the 2 year consecutive seems better than a 4 year concurrent. Because, if he has already served all but 7 months in Texas then theoretically he should only have 2 years and 7 months instead of 4 years and 7 months. At anyrate, the department of corrections can increase or decrease his time in for any number of reasons. You should schedule an appoitment with a local Oklahoma...

Can you find the statutes online? If so, you can look it up yourself. You can also do an internet search about this and might just get some material to read about it. I do not think that this is usually done in the states but I could be wrong.
