Survey of Oklahoma Divorce & Modification Issues is a research-oriented alternative to my Loudenback's Lay Guide To Oklahoma Divorce, formerly maintained at DivorceNet.com. I concluded my DivorceNet relationship 12/1/2004 and will be revising the Lay Guide and posting it here as time permits. The Survey is more thorough in its approach, even though similar topics are covered in each document. Survey is intended for those needing more than summary statements by me and includes numerous statutory and appellate case law authorities, unlike the Lay Guide which does not.

Nothing in Survey of Oklahoma Divorce & Modification Issues creates an attorney/client relationship or gives any legal advice which is fact-specific to any particular marital history. For that, you should consult with an Oklahoma lawyer who, after learning the facts, will give you such advice. This document is not a substitute for any such consultation and advice.
