This is something I see all the time. Often a good option would be for him to modify the existing order to get the "right of first refusal." What this would do is everything she wants to dump the kids somewhere she would have to give him the first option to watch the kids. this would eliminate the problem.

1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody for Oklahoma on
Answered on Jun 18, 2017

Your response must be in the county where he filed. Generally the custody action must be filed in the county of the children's residence.

I strongly urge you consult with an experienced Family Law attorney BEFORE you file anything in the case your husband brought.

Q: Can oklahoma give custody to a grandparent out of state, without notifying the parents? We were not notified of anything

Answered on Jun 15, 2017

Hello:

Your not going to get anywhere making calls. The absolute best thing you can do is schedule an appointment with a family law attorney ASAP. A Guardianship is not granted without notice to the parents unless the court enters an emergency order. To get an emergency order there has to be some very serious allegations. If an emergency is granted, the court will schedule a show cause hearing within 10 days.

If you want to get the kids back you will need to hire an attorney...

Q: My wife gave custody to her parents without my knowledge, what righys do I have?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Oklahoma on
Answered on Jun 14, 2017

If you mean that the grandparents were granted a guardianship and you were not given proper notice of the proceedings, you may have a chance at challenging the guardianship. If the facts line up right, you may have a chance at custody. It is important that you act quickly. The longer you wait to act, the more difficult it can become to deal with this situation.

Hire an attorney and fight for your rights!

Q: i currently have full custody of my 3 kids 12, 14,&16. i have to move 2.5 hours away and my ex wants to take them

1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody for Oklahoma on
Answered on Jun 14, 2017

Your Divorce Decree should contain provisions for a parent changing residence. Be sure you follow them.

While your children may express a preference as to parental custody, the judge isn't required to follow if there are good reasons not to.

You should consult an experienced family law attorney to help you with this. Good luck.

In some custody orders there will be a provision that step parents shall not discipline a child. Aside from that, I am not aware of any law that makes it a crime for a step parent to discipline a child, provided that it does not cross the line into abuse.
