Adoption

Adoption is life-changing, but the process can be overwhelming.

Adoption can be a long and difficult process.  We will assist you and your family to streamline this as much as possible.  We know what the court will require and can help you to understand intricacies of both contested and uncontested adoptions.

Paternity

Whether for a child or an adult guardianship may be applicable to your situation.  We have a great deal of experience in this area and can guide you through the requirements for guardianship.  The Court determines a guardianship based upon “need” and “best interest” among other factors.

 

In the case of a child, you may be raising a grandchild or family member, and want to know what your rights are to the child under a guardianship.  Maybe you are curious if it is appropriate for you and even necessary.  We will listen to your unique circumstances and give you an opinion based upon experience and the applicable law.  We will explain to you the requirements for consideration as guardian, the requirements for filing and notice, and what the Courts will consider.  Whether contested or agreed the final result of a guardianship order will effect the child’s life until he or she reaches the age of majority (eighteen), and we will work diligently to ensure it is done correctly.

Divorce

Divorce is never easy on anyone, but here at Wagner and Lynch, we try to make it as stress free as possible.  Parties dealing with the disunion of a marriage need sound and professional legal services to properly handle the unique challenges inherent in most divorces. A significant portion of our practice is devoted to this area of the law, and we’ve helped thousands of Oklahomans get through this trying time. Our services include helping clients reach reasonable and equitable settlements of the property and support issues often arising in such contested cases.

 

If the divorce is uncontested, one where the people can reach a decision as to the terms of the divorce without legal council or going to trial, we offer a straight forward and less expensive approach through our No Contest, No Stress Forms.  In short, this feature we provide via our website, are legal documents that are prepared by our law firm, reviewed by our legal staff, and we even try to set an appointment with judge to sign the paperwork; we walk you through the complete process.

Adults can be in need of a guardian as well.  Some Senior citizens, our moms and dads, grandparents, even brothers and sisters, may fall prey to disease or tragedy.  Our loved ones may not be able to handle their daily physical and financial needs.  You may have been advised to inquire about legal documents such as “Power of Attorney” or “Advance Directive,” and have questions as to what these are and how they relate to a guardianship.  We will meet with you and answer your questions and advise you of what may be best for your particular situation.

Let’s sit down and discuss how Wagner and Lynch can help your family.
