Creek County Family Law Attorney

At Stinnett Law, Gene Thompson can gladly assist you with any family law-related issue. Whenever anything involves your family, it is important you act quickly to secure the seasoned legal representation you need on your side. Besides divorce law, family law can encompass a wide range of issues, including:

  • Paternity- establishing whether or not you are the father
  • Prenuptial agreements- establishing who gets what (before entering into marriage) in the event of divorce
  • Domestic abuse- divorce and other related aspects of divorce can get ugly very fast. If you are the victim of an assault, I can help you file a restraining order and take other necessary steps to protect yourself and your loved ones.
  • Adoption- there is a lot of paperwork and factors involved before an adoption is finalized. To get the expert information you need to guide you through this process, speak with me today!
  • Guardianships- legal guardianship allows you to make decisions on a child's education, health care, religion and general welfare. Normally guardianship refers to a non-relative award of a child.
  • Legal name changes- whether you wish to restore your maiden name following a divorce or identify yourself with a certain family, I can help you. You will have to provide certain information and follow specific procedures in order to change your name legally in Oklahoma.
  • Annulments- an annulment is a legal method of ending a marriage. In the eyes of the legal system, an annulment is when "a marriage never occurred in the first place." In order to obtain an annulment, you will need to meet certain Oklahoma qualifications.
