At this point in time, your best play is to get a divorce on file ASAP. If you do that, you can ask the Judge to make specific Orders regarding your property and insure he doesn't hide, destroy, or otherwise get rid of your property. I'd recommend you contact a family law attorney licensed in...Read more »

I took out a mortgage loan exclusively in my name and solely based on my own personal credit. I then made an offer on a house that was accepted before I got married. The house didn’t close until after I was married. Would it be considered a marital asset under Oklahoma divorce law?
You must keep a separate bank account on that house if it is to be rented as an investment. All money collected as rent should be put into that account as well as expenses paid on that property should be written on that account. You should not commingle income produced by you or your wife with that...Read more »

The date of your divorce is the date the Judge granted it notwithstanding that the decree or an amended decree was filed much later. The amended decree you speak of should reflect in the opening lines the date the Judge granted the divorce even though filed weeks later.

I would say that you need the services of an experienced family law practitioner licensed in the State of Oklahoma. That person should be able to handle most (if not all) of the issues that you're experiencing now.
If the divorce has been filed, there is an ATI (automatic temporary injunction) in place. You need to hire an attorney before doing anything to make sure you do not violate the ATI or anything else that could cause a problem.
There is nothing in Oklahoma law that is a permanent legal separation. If you or she has filed paperwork in Court asking for a legal separation, there is nothing in the law to prohibit you two with living together while legally separated. Legal separations are normally used by couples wanting an...Read more »

I'm not entirely certain what you mean by "divorce kit." However, if you're referring to filed out paperwork to file the divorce, do not sign those without having a licensed attorney first review them. Further, do not agree to or sign anything without first consulting with an attorney licensed to...Read more »
