What Are the Grounds for Divorce in Oklahoma?

Oklahoma is considered a no-fault divorce state and most often grants divorces based on “irreconcilable differences” or incompatibility. However, Oklahoma is one of a few states that upholds “fault” grounds for divorce.

In Oklahoma, the following are common grounds for divorce:

  • Incompatibility
  • Adultery
  • Fraud
  • Cruelty
  • Abandonment
  • Conviction of a felony
  • Living apart
  • Imprisonment

A divorce can be one of the most difficult events in your life. Due to the significant emotional investment and impact on your future, it is important to make sure that you are well-represented during this time. Backed by 15 years of experience, our Stillwater divorce lawyer, Alyssa Campbell, can help guide you through this process. Our role is to be both an advocate and counselor. We advocate aggressively for clients' rights and stand up for them when they can’t stand up for themselves.

Requirements that Must Be Met to Divorce in Oklahoma

To file for a divorce, you must have lived in Oklahoma for at least six months before filing the petition. In addition, you must have lived in the county where you are filing for divorce for at least 30 days before filing the petition.

Legal Separation in Oklahoma

Like many other states, Oklahoma has a process for legal separation. Legal separation is similar to divorce, but it doesn’t actually terminate the marriage. Instead, when the courts recognize a couple as legally separated, it allows matters such as property division, support, and custody to be decided even though the couple remains married. The decree on the issues could change though when the couple ultimately divorces.

Just like “no-fault” divorce, a spouse does not have to have any grounds to request legal separation in Oklahoma. There must simply be “irreconcilable differences”.

A few benefits of legal separation include:

  • Gives the couple a chance for reconciliation before ending the marriage in divorce
  • Allows a couple to be better prepared for the divorce as they figure out much of the complicated matters during the separation period
  • Allows a couple to continue enjoying the benefits provided with a legal marriage (tax, insurance, etc.)

While legal separation has its benefits, it does keep a couple in the state of limbo. Neither spouse has the freedom to be fully independent of the other spouse or remarry during the separation. Ultimately, the spouses will need to choose to get back together or end the marriage in divorce.
