Things happen sometimes. Certain situations and relationships don’t work out as planned, and unexpected events can have ripple effects that touch on numerous aspects of both our daily lives and long-term plans. This is perhaps true nowhere more than in the realm of family and domestic life, whether it relates to a divorce, child custody or paternity issues, plans for adoption, or instances of domestic violence or abuse.
As a family law firm in Oklahoma City, we are experienced and compassionate Oklahoma City family law attorneys who are intimately familiar with the legal aspects and implications of domestic and family law issues. If you need legal representation for an Oklahoma divorce, custody case, adoption or other family-related legal issue, call our office today.
At Denker & Zuhdi, PLLC, we represent clients in all types of Oklahoma separation and divorce proceedings:
In Oklahoma, divorce proceedings commence with one spouse’s filing of a petition for dissolution of marriage in Oklahoma state court. If the divorce is contested, it may also make sense to file a motion for a temporary order seeking custody, support, and payment of attorneys’ fees. There will typically be a hearing on this preliminary motion, and then the parties will engage in discovery to obtain the information they need to support their position in the divorce. After the discovery process, the divorce will typically be resolved through mediation, or at trial in court—assuming the parties are unable to reach a settlement. At Denker & Zuhdi, PLLC, we work closely with our clients in order to understand their goals and obtain an efficient and favorable resolution to their divorce.
If you are having problems following a divorce, we also represent clients seeking modification and enforcement of divorce decrees, support rights and obligations, property allocations, and child custody rights.
For parents seeking custody of their children, often the best and most efficient way to reach a resolution is by negotiating mutually-acceptable custody arrangement and visitation plan. However, if this is not possible, parents also have the option to resort to the courts for intervention in establishment of custody and visitation rights. At Denker & Zuhdi, PLLC, we listen to our clients to learn about their personal circumstances, and then work with that information to develop a strategy for obtaining the child custody rights they desire.
We also represent both fathers and mothers in Oklahoma paternity cases. We are experienced in establishing evidence of paternity, and representing clients with respect to custody, support and other Oklahoma family law issues.
At Denker & Zuhdi, PLLC, we provide comprehensive consultation and legal representation for all aspects of the adoption process. Click to read more about our legal services for Oklahoma adoptions.
