Oklahoma law says that equitable division does not necessarily mean 50/50; rather, it just means that the division of property has to be “just and reasonable.” This means that the court can give you more than half of the marital property if the judge believes that division is fair.
Separate property is that which was acquired before the marriage, inherited, or received as a personal gift. Marital property is everything else acquired during the marriage, without regard to whose name is ***** ***** title.
So, here there are no hard and fact rules as the judge has discretion to divide the property based on what each party needs as way to meet basic day to day needs AND based on what each spouse contributed to the marriage.
If you can show that most of these assets were bought with your earinings, then that will go a long way in helping you get a fair distribution.
