Oklahoma Family Laws
As a practice area, family law encompasses a broad range of disciplines, such as marriage, divorce, child custody, child support, adoption, and other matters. While abortion laws also are included in this section, it may also be considered a matter of health care law. This section covers a number of family-related statutes pertaining to Oklahoma families, such as the types of marriage that are prohibited, the legal requirements for divorce, and the meaning of marital property. Some criminal matters also involve family law, such as when a victim of domestic abuse seeks a protective order and perhaps a modification of child custody.
