If after reading the FAQs and subsequent responses below you still have unanswered questions then we recommend that you call Bulldog Divorce at the number listed on the left hand side of this case, or in the alternative, we recommend that you conduct a basic Google search of your answered questions.
Below is a list of FAQs:
FAQ Number One: How Long Is My Divorce Going To Last?

FAQ Number Four: How Do I Settle My Divorce Outside Of Court?
Answer: Good communication between you and your soon-to-be-ex is the key. Also, so long as both of you will be reasonable in your demands toward one another, then the odds of your case being settled outside of Court go up considerably.

FAQ Number Nine: What Is Mediation?
Answer: Mediation is Tulsa County involves use of one (1) mediator for a two (2) hour session. At the mediation session, you and your attorney will be seated in one room and your soon-to-be-ex and their attorney will be seated in another room. The mediator will walk back and forth between the two rooms for a couple of hours, relaying settlement offers and relaying counter-settlement offers in order to help open up communication and hopefully reach a full and final settlement.
FAQ Number Ten: What Is Divorce Court Like?
Answer: Divorce Court is nothing like what you see on TV. There is no media, there is no panel of jurors, and for the most part the testimony provided is done so in a small Court Room where only a handful of interested individuals (you, your soon-to-be-ex, the Attorneys, and the Judge) will be present.
FAQ Number Eleven: How Do I Find A Serious Tulsa Divorce Attorney?
Answer: Call Bulldog Divorce at (918) 591-2566. If we cannot help you, we will connect you with a divorce attorney who can.
With regard to each one of the FAQs above, we strongly recommend that before you call a divorce attorney, seat some time aside to yourself, sit down and write up a list of each and every issue in your case that you believe needs to be addressed by your attorney. As you are writing up this, be sure to include the following:
Number One: Have many children do you and your soon-to-be-ex have together?
Number Two: How old are you all’s children?
Number Three: Do any of the children have a preference about custody?
Number Four: Where will you live after separation?
Number Five: Where will your soon-to-be ex live?
Number Six: How will you pay your bills after separation?
Number Seven: How will your soon-to-be-ex pay their bills?
Number Eight: What property items still need to be divided?
Additionally, when you sit down and write up this list, we further recommend that you ask yourself the following question: ‘Am I ready for a divorce?’ Further, if you and your soon-to-be-ex have children together, ask yourself ‘How will the divorce effect our children?’ By asking yourself both of these questions and thoroughly thinking about your answers, you will be able to better communicate with your attorney once you and the attorney sit down together for the initial consultation.
Lastly, just like we stated above, although Mr. Ingham has a ton of experience litigating cases in Tulsa County Family Court, and although the list of FAQs above is extensive, you probably have more questions about your case that need to be answered. If this is you, then we recommend that you contact Bulldog Divorce. You can do so by clicking on the following link: Tulsa Divorce Attorney.
