One of the most difficult family law issues a person can face is divorce.

When a couple decides to divorce, one spouse may be awarded temporary or permanent spousal support or alimony. Spousal support or alimony is determined by many factors, including one spouse's ability to pay it and the other spouse's financial need. Spousal support or alimony can be awarded as a lump-sum payment or as a yearly or monthly payment.

If you have a legal issue involving spousal support or alimony during a divorce, contact Nichols Law Firm to review the facts of your case and determine your next course of action.

Property Division/Division Of Assets

One of the many legal issues that will be addressed in a divorce is the division of assets/marital property. This issue can be very easy to decide or it can evoke all kinds of emotions and be extremely difficult.

When a couple cannot agree on division of assets, then a family law judge will order an equitable division of the property. However, this does not mean the property is always equally split 50/50 between the parties. Deciding on a mutually agreeable division of property and assets is usually best because a judge's decision often disappoints both parties.

Property division often depends on several factors, including the length of the marriage, the value of the property at the time of marriage, the value of the separate property of each spouse, the age of each spouse, mental and physical health, etc.

If you are considering or going through a divorce involving the division of assets, Oklahoma divorce attorney Drew Nichols would like to provide you guidance and representation during this difficult time.
