Subject Matter Jurisdiction issues are being argued based on McGirt and Murphy cases in Oklahoma. You need to be on a role and have a CBID card that shows you have a blood quantum. Further the crime must have occurred on Muskogee/Creek territory. I believe there has just been a ruling regarding...Read more »
Depends...if they are having a hard time finding their witness then I don't like it because it gives them ore time to find them. If on the other hand, they are contemplating new evidence that might exonerate you then it is a good thing. Generally, I prefer pushing forward and calling ready....Read more »
Im trying to see what the odds are of getting soul custody of my son. Hes 10 months old and his father is bad into drugs and lives in his car because his ex kicked him out. He does have a job at a gas station but has only helped me twice since my son has been born with diapers. He never sees my son... Read more »
Not sure what your legal situation is at the moment, so it makes it hard to answer your question. There are two types of custody: Legal and Physical Custody. Legal Custody is about making decisions for the child. Examples would be where to go to school, church, medical treatment, etc. Physical...Read more »
I scanned my items in self checkout. I noticed the machine was making a weird beeping when I scanned. Finally a worker came over and fixed it. So I went to leave and they asked for my receipt. They contained me saying I was a thief. I dont remember much of the event but I think she said I was... Read more »
It really depends on how many times you have gone to court whether the judge will give you more time. Usually, most judges, will give you time to retain an attorney. My suggestion is to contact at least two attorneys and get prices. Let the judge know that you have contacted those specific...Read more »
Generally speaking anytime there is an adult and the minor under the age of 16 years, you have considerable risk, in that the minor cannot give consent to anything. Also, Lewd Molestation, child pornography, etc. are charges that could be alleged for as little as selfies in bathing suits, or...Read more »
In most cases, the relocating party must provide notice well in advance in order to offer the other party time to object. If they just move and take the child with them, then you can file an Application for Contempt for staters. Unless there is a very good reason for the move and it won't...Read more »
They were never married, no abuse except for mental abuse from her to him. They have 2 children but my husband accepts her other child as his and we have him when we have the others. Her family says she never has them, either we have them or her mother or sister do. Kids are 8, 9, and 12.

You are correct, the DA cannot charge you or in any other was threaten you to testify if you are the victim. With that said, that does not prevent DHS from opening a case. This happens more than it should.
The service of a subpoena is not the real issue. The issue is your willingness to...Read more »
In May when I called this credit card company they said I was not on account they could not talk to me and would be off my credit and now 4 months later I'm on the magically on the account. Been spareted since Oct. 2016. Filed for divorce in Feb. 2016.
If you filed for divorce in 2016, my first question is why hasn't that been finalized? Nothing should take that long unless you have been trying to reconcile. Next, with the divorce petition you both should have signed an ATI (automatic temporary injunction), which in simple terms freezes...Read more »
We are living at different homes and she explicitly said I could sleep with other people, which is saved in a text message. Is it possible for her to attempt saying I cheated on her despite having her permission?
My son turned 18 in Jan, and graduated HS in May. I am still receiving the full amount that I've been receiving. I also have a 16 yr old. I was given 2 different responses from 2 different employees at CS enforcement. The NCP was told he could potentially pay more for 1 child than he pays for... Read more »
The child support order is not for two individual children, but instead is for support of all children. Therefore, just because one of the children reaches the age of majority (18 years of age and graduated from high school) it does not...Read more »
When you say testified, do you mean in court under oath? If that is the case, then I would question why the father still has unsupervised visitation? If you came to me with that claim, I would probably start by calling his attorney and try to get an agreement to adjust the visitation temporarily...Read more »
I do not want to testify or help aide in the conviction of my intimate partner in an ongoing domestic violence case. If I’m subpoenaed and I refuse to show up to court and testify what legal action and punishment could I face?
If you are subpoena'ed you should show up at court. The subpoena literally is a court order for you to show up. Now whether you have to testify is another thing altogether. There is a statute in Oklahoma that prevents the DA's office from prosecuting a victim. So, they cannot...Read more »
Have your mother call the DA's office int he county where her car was stolen and the suspect is in jail. Tell them how much it would cost to fix, or what the vehicle was worth before the transmission was destroyed. The DA's office should include in their charges restitution, which they...Read more »
