If you are searching for a family law attorney in the greater Tulsa, Oklahoma area, look no further than David Keesling. You should definitely go forward with legal counsel by your side when family law matters present themselves, and Keesling Law can and will provide it.
One very common situation that would fall under the family law umbrella is the matter of divorce. A divorce petition can be filed on grounds such as adultery, incompatibility, gross neglect of duty, abandonment, and a number of others. There are also no-fault divorces based on incompatibility.
The division of property is going to be part of the equation if you are going through a divorce, and our firm can help you obtain a fair outcome. Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state, and we have a thorough understanding of the property division laws, so we can make sure that you retain ownership of property that is rightfully yours.
Child Custody and Child Support
When a divorce proceeding is unfolding, child custody will enter the picture if there are minor children involved. There are two different types of custody: physical custody, and legal custody. As the term would suggest, a child would live with a parent who has physical custody. Legal custody is the ability of a parent to make legally binding decisions on behalf of a child. In many cases, one parent will be granted primary physical custody, and the parents will share legal custody. Our family law attorneys can help you obtain the outcome that you desire during child custody proceedings.
Child support is another matter that our family law attorneys have a great deal of expertise with, and we can help you understand the child support laws in the state of Oklahoma. Ultimately, we will advocate your interests when it comes to child support, whether you are paying it or receiving it.
Spousal Maintenance and Alimony
Our family law attorneys can also provide advocacy when it comes to spousal maintenance and/or alimony. Spousal maintenance is a temporary form of support that is paid by one spouse to the other before the divorce has been finalized by the court. Alimony is paid in accordance with the terms of the divorce decree. It is often paid incrementally, but lump sum alimony arrangements can sometimes be part of a decree.
