In a short answer, No and yes. You can no longer get the child back as your children because your rights have been terminated. If the child wants, and if the child's legal parents (your parents it appears) choose to let the child stay with you, that is their right as the parents, however, in...Read more »
My brother takes care of his kids full time. They were born out of wedlock and the mother has a history of mental illness. She has been like this for the past 2 years. She often states that God tells her to do things, says horrible things and has been in and out of hospitals. She just wrote him a... Read more »

CPS went to a young mom's house, saw she had a physical disability and claimed it would hinder her ability to pick up her newborn child and that she couldn't be alone with the child and told her to take the child to the sisters house (mom is in a wheelchair). That was a year ago and the... Read more »
Sounds like there are probably more details to this case than what has been included here. I think she should be prepared to explain why she didnt take legal action the very same day the child was removed instead of waiting a year.
Before she does anything she needs to have an attorney...Read more »
She is not unfit mother she cares for all 4 the dad is a truck driver sees his son by court order and he pays for child support he is 14,000 behind now taking her to court to get her to pay child support
Bottom line, she needs to hire an attorney to defend this case. I suggest she do so first thing Monday morning. Where many people go wrong is they wait too long to get an attorney and damage is done to the case that the attorney later may or may not be able to undo.
If there is a court order for visitation then the child visits when the order says the child visits. If she wants a job it would need to be a job that does not schedule her during visitations. In the alternative, if the parents are both mature enough to coparent, they can talk and try to work...Read more »
She lives with her mother, I just want to know what her mother’s options are at this point because law enforcement says since this girl is 16, actually has the mentality of a 12 year old there is nothing they can do to make her come home.
Unless you have a guardianship of the child it would be up to her parents to take action. I would say calling the police would be the best place to start. The parents should also consult with a family law attorney asap to explain the situation in full detail and that attorney can then explain any...Read more »
I have asked several times for him to stop sending that way but he still does, the papers say the 1st of every month but I always get it between the 12th and 15th. Is there a way to garnish it without Child support enforcement?

Dhs took my son and said he and I both tested positive for fentanyl but come to find it it was the anestelogist that gave it when I had a emergency c section. But I have a previous dhs case that has been closed. Will it do me any good to find it.
This is a much more complex question than can be answered in this format. The part of the answer is that he would have to file for paternity in order to invoke any parental rights. Considering the fact that he is guilty of a crime based on your age difference and the sexual nature of your...Read more »
If you were not married, Oklahoma law states the mother has custody of the child until the district court orders otherwise. It is critical that you get a petition filed in the district court to establish your rights. Hire an attorney asap to help you get this done.
My main question is this both kids are 12 years and older and have expressed verbally to me that they want to live with me. I am getting remarried and will be moving out of the state of Oklahoma next month.
The law states you must wait 6 months after the divorce is granted to remarry. Also, you would have to follow the provisions of the relocation statute that will be set forth in the decree in you want to move.
This sounds like a pro se divorce. I strongly suggest you consult in person...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.
