18. We have 50/50 custody. I left state 3 mos. Later,changed job to 53k a year. Now see child every other weekend. She now wants more child support,though in notorized document she stated she would never ask more child support. Not in decree. Just notorized paper she wrote and agreed to.
Even though you have gone from 50/50 to weekends you still have rights to 182 overnights. So, unless you have increased your income dramatically, I would be surprised if your child support rate would change. She can ask for whatever she wants, but it will be up to the Judge if she wants to fight...Read more »
Pete nailed it. 12 of the last 14 months for adoption. The only other angle would be through a Juvenile termination for child neglect, but that would be a stretch, especially if you have made any payments at all.

If it is a first offense, it should only be a misdemeanor. That means the worst he can get is 1 year jail time. If she is not going to testify against him then most likely it will be dismissed unless he gave a statement incriminating himself or someone else witnessed the altercation and they are...Read more »
There is a lot to unpack here. First, has a Paternity case been filed? If not, then he really doesn't have any rights at all. If, not he other hand, the court has determined paternity, then Oklahoma will have jurisdiction over custody and visitation. With that said, all you would need to...Read more »
You really need to hire an attorney for this type of action. It i a breach of the child custody order and would be considered contempt. There are certain hurdles a person must jump through if they move more than 75 miles or outside the agreed distance in the decree or paternity order.
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 »

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 »

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.

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 »
