Attorney Edith A. Singer, wife of controversial Claremore Police Investigator John F. Singer, filed for divorce Friday and sought sole custody of their children ages 6 and 3.
She listed “a state of complete and irreconcilable incompatibility…which has completely destroyed the aims of the marriage” as the cause for seeking the divorce. That phrasing is very common in Oklahoma divorce cases
She asked for child support from John Singer, who remains employed at the Claremore Police Department, and to have joint property since their marriage on Feb. 21, 2004 in Tulsa divided equitably.
She said Investigator Singer should have “reasonable visitation” with the children.
The petition was filed Friday, May 2 in Rogers County District Court and was notarized that day by Jennifer Book, deputy court clerk for Rogers County.
The case was filed as E.A.S vs. J.A.S. so the actual names of those involved would not register on the index of the state’s computer court system, which makes details of court cases available to the public.
For those wishing to keep track of the case, it is FD-2014-169 in Rogers County District Court and files may be accessed at oscn.net by going to the Rogers County listings and then entering the case number at the appropriate prompt.
There is no charge for viewing or printing out filings from the site.
Tulsa Attorney Chad Nuens represents John Singer in a number of civil matters. He did not reply to a request for comment faxed to his office Monday. Edith Singer is acting pro se.
