Q: i am a mother in oklahoma whose 5 children were illegally removed by falsifying documents, i have my case file on hand
i want to know if the documents are legal, i will take a picture. i just really need a answer, they've been gone for 9 mths now
A: I can't tell whether the children were legally removed, simply by looking at the documents alone.
The question as to whether it is legal to remove children from a parent's custody, depends on a great many factors. I would have to know the circumstances of the removal, the condition of the children, the condition of the home, and behavior of the parents.
If you can afford an attorney, it's probably best for you to consult one.
A: Let me also add: in general, there is no fixed "magic formula" with which court documents have to comply, in order for the documents to be legal. So, if I looked at the documents, I wouldn't be able to see if anything was wrong with them.
If the documents contain materially false information, that could be grounds for arguing that your children have been wrongfully taken from you.
But, I can't tell if anything in the documents is false, simply by looking at the documents. I would have to know what was going on in the children's lives, in order to know whether the documents were actually true.
