“I don’t believe in divorce, but my spouse has left me. Is there anything I can do?”

“I don’t believe in divorce, but my spouse has left me.  Is there anything I can do?”  In Oklahoma, Separation is the most peculiar dissolution option.  An Oklahoma legal Separation does not grant the dissolution of a marriage.  It is merely spousal support alimony without the divorce.  The couple remains married.  However, if one party files for separation, either with or without an Oklahoma Divorce Lawyer, and the other party files for divorce, then the divorce case will trump the separation case.  Separation is typically used when one party feels they may be able to salvage their marriage, but they don't want to be left with anything to support themselves while they work on their marriage. If you need further information continue browsing this site for additional legal information about your Oklahoma Legal Issue or contact one of our Oklahoma Divorce Lawyers.
