How do I file for divorce, what papers do I need, where do I get the paper work?

Answer: Divorces may be filed in the Court Clerk’s Office. Oklahoma is a non-form state.  The Court Clerk’s Office does not provide divorce papers. They may be obtained through a legal service or an attorney. The only papers we have for divorce are the waiver and summons.
