What To Do When The
Marriage Divorce Doesn’t Work Out
You get a divorce then reconcile. You might want to get remarried. However, there is another answer you can also have the divorce vacated in Oklahoma. This is available if:
- An Oklahoma Court issued the divorce;
- Both parties agree; and
- Neither of the parties have married a third person since the divorce.
Social Security Rules Regarding Divorce and Benefits:
Generally: If divorced, in order to be eligible for Social Security Benefits you must have been married 10 or more years and not be remarried. But if the divorce is vacated, social security considers it as follows, “Because the order vacating the divorce decree stated that the divorce was set aside, vacated, and held for naught, the divorce was reordered a nullity, as if the parties had never been divorced.” See ruling. If either spouse was previously been married, it may be more advantageous for Social Security benefits to remain divorced. See Rules.
