The Ins and Outs of Equitable Distribution
Divorce is a situation where many people are unfortunately faced with at one time or another. For many people, divorce means you may be at risk of losing assets and property as a result of the split. It is important to note that the state of Oklahoma considers all property that was individually acquired by either party during the marriage to be equally owned by both parties. This means that Oklahoma is an equitable distribution state, which means that all income, 401(k)s, interests, credit card and tax debts, houses, cars, and so on are equally owned during the marriage and are equally distributed in the event of a divorce.
