Q: If you are married, but not legally separated, and have a child with someone else

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

Any child born during a marriage is PRESUMED to be the child of the husband, and he will be responsible for child support. It was pretty dumb of him to refuse to sign the denial of paternity form!

Next, it would be unlawful to "run ad in paper for divorce" if you knew how to contact him. He needs to be served with Summons, and copies of divorce paperwork. If he does nothing, the Judge will order him to pay child support.

Answered on Aug 10, 2017

Every jurisdiction is different. Even within the same state, different probation departments VARY greatly, in their enforcement efforts and procedures.

So, if stopped by police, they can search your car, or clothing. Same for your house. The materials below are from one of my...
