Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption, experiencing the pain of marital conflict, or facing another legal issue close to home, Charles P. Horton at Horton & Associates listens to your needs, understands your concerns and helps you reach solutions to your legal problems.
Mr. Horton has served families throughout southwest Oklahoma for more than 30 years. He provides legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:
Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. Horton & Associates assists families with the complex legal process of adoption, so you can feel secure about your child’s future well-being.
Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Horton & Associates helps you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.
Child custody and visitation
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Horton & Associates advocates for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. Horton & Associates helps ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, Horton & Associates can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Throughout your divorce, Horton & Associates stand by you. Mr. Horton accompanies you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Oklahoma authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. Horton & Associates is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Oklahoma to protect your parental rights.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Mr. Horton is a skilled negotiator who can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. Horton & Associates expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
