Coach You Through The Oklahoma Divorce Process

Challenge of the Oklahoma Divorce Process

Going through the Oklahoma Divorce Process can be challenging. It’s one of those things in life that you don’t think you will ever engage in, and it’s certainly not something they prepare you for in college or high school. The Oklahoma Divorce Process is a process we know very well!

Like most endeavors, divorce can be a challenge. The Oklahoma divorce process can be both intimidating and exhausting. Just preparing for a divorce can be costly, not only in monetary cost, but emotional stress and mental exhaustion are factors which weigh heavily on the bottom line!

No one WANTS to get a divorce. No one ever set out in life to get a divorce. Everyone starts their life with dreams of a wedding and a life filled with happiness. We all plan for happiness. Who plans for disaster?
When dealing with the Oklahoma Divorce Process, most people don’t have a clue. The first thought, is get a lawyer! Lawyers are very important! A good divorce lawyer can protect you in the midst of the other party attempting to wrong you.

Most cases, however, don’t necessarily need to be hard fought for a win. Lawyers, like soldiers, are designed for war. For most couples, the war is already over. The divorce process is supposed to bring peace. Instead, it often brings more death and destruction.

I am thoroughly convinced, after 6 years of being a divorce mediator, that divorce itself is not the cause of post traumatic stress after a divorce, but rather, a lengthy, nasty and costly divorce war is the culprit.

Does the Oklahoma Divorce Process have to be deadly?

At Express Documents & Mediation, we pride ourselves on helping people end the war with diplomacy. There are often unsettled disputes when people enter our offices, but these are disputes we can easily settle. We have seen people leave our offices, engage in war, rack up 6 figures worth of legal fees, and end up BACK in our office to settle the deal! One woman spent over $100k in legal fees over a 5 year span!!! WHY?!!!

Our Oklahoma Divorce Process is proven, tested and ready to settle disputes in a manner which drastically reduces cost, stress and emotional turmoil! We attack the problem, not the people!
