Q: Re: Title 21 OS 21-1362 Discharging firearms in Osage County,

Numerous Osage County law enforcement officials have stated it is NOT illegal to discharge firearms outside city/town limits in Osage County. So is it illegal or not?

Jason Perkins answered on Nov 8, 2018

They may be mistaking the difference between not illegal and not enforcing the law. They may not know about the law. There are many different laws that make it quite difficult if not impossible to know them all.

Q: After getting full custody. How do i get his last name changed and my name put on his birth certificate? I am his father

Ideally you would have asked for a name change in the custody proceedings. You should hire an attorney to do a name change for you or see if the previous judge would be willing to amend their order to allow for it.

Q: I'm 27 and my wife is 17. We've been married since 11-17 and we want to move to Florida. Is that going to be legal there

We are married in Oklahoma. I just want to make sure we won't be breaking any statutory laws when we move.

Jason Perkins answered on May 21, 2018

I agree with Mr. Louden, Florida laws need to be answered by a Florida attorney. I would add though how certain are you that you are married in Oklahoma? With the age obviously being an issue there has to be a very precise set of events that occur for the marriage to be valid.

Jason Perkins answered on Nov 10, 2017

I think you are asking how a step father can become the child's father if the biological father is not in the picture. I would recommend that you hire an attorney and look into seeing if the biological father would be open to the step father adopting the child.

Jason Perkins answered on Nov 5, 2017

You are allowed to have a boyfriend during a divorce. With the facts you presented I would certainly recommend that you hire an attorney. It would not be the best idea to live together during this time and sometimes the judge will even issue a court order saying you cannot.
