You should contact an attorney to assist you in getting what is rightfully yours and what is fair and equitable. Your indiscretion alone is not sufficient to change the fair and equitable distribution. Unless there is more to the case then you need an attorney to help you get that fair treatment....Read more »

If he is represented, the attorney must be licensed in Oklahoma in some form, even if it is a temporary licensure (pro has vice).

My wife filed a petition for divorce. I’m being served papers tomorrow. My spouse’s father is telling me to meet him tomorrow morning with a notary to sign the papers. Do I need to sign them then or can I take them, read over them, and sign and get them notarized when I’m ready?
A notary is not needed to be served papers. You should NOT sign anything when being served. You should receive a copy of the summons as well as the petition. Then you have a little over two weeks to file your answer/response with the court. If you have any other questions then reach out to a family...Read more »

It depends on a lot of things. The wording of your decree regarding debt, the timing of the purchases, and whether it is a debit or credit card. I wish I could help you more, but I would hire an attorney to help you clear it up.
Since they have been divorced he inherited 7million dollars. Is there anyway she is entitled to any of that money? She is almost 70 and still works full time, so if she could get some of that money it would make her life a LOT easier. The divorce took place in Oklahoma
You really need to hire an attorney for this type of action. It i a breach of the child custody order and would be considered contempt. There are certain hurdles a person must jump through if they move more than 75 miles or outside the agreed distance in the decree or paternity order.
In May when I called this credit card company they said I was not on account they could not talk to me and would be off my credit and now 4 months later I'm on the magically on the account. Been spareted since Oct. 2016. Filed for divorce in Feb. 2016.
If you filed for divorce in 2016, my first question is why hasn't that been finalized? Nothing should take that long unless you have been trying to reconcile. Next, with the divorce petition you both should have signed an ATI (automatic temporary injunction), which in simple terms freezes...Read more »
We are living at different homes and she explicitly said I could sleep with other people, which is saved in a text message. Is it possible for her to attempt saying I cheated on her despite having her permission?
In the majority of divorce proceedings there is an automatic temporary order. This prevents selling, disposing, destroying, etc.... any marital assets. Likewise, insurances must remain intact as well. Even with the temporary order in place a judge may give permission for one or the other party...Read more »

So, do not make any legal decisions without first meeting with an attorney. The attorney can review what you have...Read more »
