Q: I am trying to get full custody of my children

Judge in OK sentenced me to no custody and only supervised visitation after 1 of our 3 boys was returned to his mother with a bruise on his backside, allegedly. That decision was made in 2007. Can it be changed today?

Yes. You will likely want to file a motion to modify your visitation restriction. if the events causing the supervision have been corrected. That is, in the eyes of the court.
