The spouse filing the divorce papers must pay a filing fee to the court clerk. The fee for filing a divorce in Oklahoma is about $240. If the filing spouse is unemployed, a full time-student, or on a fixed income, the court can waive the filing fee. The court may also allow the filing fee to be paid installments. This way the divorce can be filed and allowed to proceed with only a minimal payment toward the overall filing fee. We provide our customers with the documents necessary to request that the filing fee be waived by the court. You can download the application to waive the filing fee for free.

The issue of child support must be addressed in every divorce that includes a minor child. Judges usually require that the parties submit a completed child support computation form. However,child support does not have to paid in every case because judges are allowed to deviate from the child support guidelines. For example, in a case where the parents share joint custody of a child, the judge can order that no child support be paid at all if the parties agree. So while the issue of child support must be addressed in the divorce papers, the judge can order that child support does not have to be paid by either spouse.
For divorcing couples that have a minor child (or children), both parents must complete a four hour divorce co-parenting class. Divorcing couples may attend the class together or separately.
