Family Law

An unfortunate reality is that most marriages end before “death do us part.” No one wants to find themselves in that situation, but in such an event, it is important to obtain competent legal counsel – an attorney who can represent your interests with vigor and compassion, because the legal burdens of separation are complicated and emotionally taxing.

The attorneys as Smolen, Smolen & Roytman are among the most proficient and highly regarded attorneys in the state. Whether it be filing for divorce, attempting to change a custody order, or negotiating and drafting nuptial agreements, they provide qualified advice and guidance with the specific aim of achieving the most expeditious result for our clients through complex negotiations and, if necessary, court proceedings. While amicable resolutions are in everyone’s best interest, they are not always feasible. In these instances, our attorneys are committed to representing our clients vehemently through litigation. We will exhaust every legal avenue to protect our client’s best interests.


The attorneys at Smolen, Smolen & Roytman, PLLC assist and counsel clients with respect to all legal aspects involving family law, including the following:

  • prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • separation agreements
  • divorce
  • child custody and visitation
  • child support orders, enforcement and modifications
  • equitable distribution of property
  • grandparents’ rights
  • paternity
  • support and maintenance
  • protective orders
  • post-judgment modifications
  • appeals

The division of assets can often involve complicated financial and valuation issues, requiring experienced, competent representation. Our attorneys are highly qualified and have extensive experience with the tax, real estate and fiduciary consequences of the division of assets involved in any divorce proceeding.

Of course, not all terms of your final divorce decree last forever. Often times, situations dictate that the provisions of a final divorce decree be modified and/or altered. Grandparents may attempt to obtain child visitation, child support may require modification or enforcement, and custody orders may need to be modified for the best interests of the child involved. Our commitment to our clients includes seeing them through this ever-evolving landscape.

Finally, in some situations, the final decree may be so adverse to a person’s best interest that it requires appeal to a higher court. In situations such as these, the stakes are quite high, and require a combination of both experience and understanding of complex appellate rules and procedures. Our firm has prepared and argued hundreds of appeals, in front of both the Supreme Court of Oklahoma and the Tenth Circuit of the United States of America. Let us help you, too.
