To adopt through a private agency or state foster care system, you must apply and submit to a “home study,” to determine if you can provide a suitable home. In an “open adoption,” birth-parents and adoptive parents meet and share identifying information. An international adoption is complicated by U.S. laws and the laws of the child’s home country. Our family law attorneys can provide a detailed explanation of your state’s adoption processes.
Generally, spouses are allowed to keep their separate property ― assets they owned before the marriage and gifts or inheritance they received before, during, or after the marriage. Property acquired during the marriage — such as income, savings, retirement accounts, stocks, bonds, cars, homes, and furnishings — is considered shared property, and divided between the spouses. If you have questions about property division in your state, our divorce attorneys can provide specific guidance. Please call 405-416-2711 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys. Our office is in Oklahoma City near the Quail Springs Mall.
