I'm not aware of any forms, but a form would not help you anyway. If you are trying to get joint custody in a paternity case, you are going to need an attorney. There are many excellent attorneys in your part of the state. Contact a few and hire the one you feel comfortable working with on...Read more »
When emergency protective order was made, the petitioner added special condition that once a week the defendant would receive a phone call from a restricted number to be able to speak with minor child. The petitioner has only called twice in a year.
I think your first step is to have an attorney review what you have. If there is no existing custody order, your next step should be to obtain an initial custody determination in the District Court. Then, that order can be enforced. Hire an attorney to help you get this done.

Mother makes the daughter feel bad for leaving her. So the daughter won't go with the father. Police have been involved but won't tear daughter from mother. Understandable, but it is court ordered. So, can the police issue a contempt ticket on spot or do we need to go to court?
I agree with the other attorneys. If it is your visitation that is being denied hire an attorney to enforce your visitation. There is a procedure that is much faster than contempt to enforce visitation order. Your attorney will be able to explain your options.
Paternity decree states if father is in the area, he is allowed in person visits as long as he gives mother a 10 day notice. The visits will be supervised by mother and last three hours if parents can not decide on a time and there will be no more then two visits in one week. Father has asked for a... Read more »
An attorney would need to actually see your order before trying to give you specific advice. With that said and in general terms, if a parent comes from Oregon and wanted to visit two days while in Oklahoma, I would have to believe a court would find that to be a reasonable request.
