Each state has its own way to divide spousal property during a divorce. Oklahoma is an equitable division state, meaning marital property will be split between spouses in a way that is fair and reasonable. Marital property includes all assets the couple acquired during the course of the marriage, while separate property includes property acquired before the marriage or after the divorce is filed.

Courts have the discretion to consider multiple different elements unique to each marriage, so no divorce will rarely have the same property division outcome. A judge will look at how each spouse contributed to the marriage, including any contributions from an at-home spouse, and the conditions each partner in the marriage will face alone after the divorce. For example, the court will look at the earning potential, medical needs, and childcare costs of each spouse. Likewise, a judge will review the length of the marriage, the health and wellness of the spouses, liabilities, and any tax consequences after the divorce. Liabilities, or debts, are also divided during a divorce, even if the majority was accrued by one spouse.
