Kyle Persaud's answer This is governed by the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), and the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA).
Both the UCCJEA and UIFSA are very complicated. There are many factors to be considered in deciding whether to transfer a child support case, and in determining which state has jurisdiction. Based on the limited information you have provided, I cannot answer as to whether this case should be transferred out of Oklahoma.
That depends on the county. Often, in smaller counties, the process goes quicker.
But, if you filed in November 2016 (over two years ago) then, there is probably something amiss -- it shouldn't ever take over two years to get a hearing. There's probably an administrative or clerical error, and someone forgot to docket your case.
Did you file this case in court? If so, call the court clerk, and ask...
Kyle Persaud's answer If you file for child support, it will be up to the judge to decide whether the father gets visitation.
Except in the most extraordinary circumstances, judges generally grant visitation to both parents. You may be able to get an order saying any of the father's visitation is to be supervised. It will all depend on the judge.
Gary Johnston Dean's answer He can be charged in Oklahoma with a felony (prison time) when delinquency is over $5000. See your local state child support agency to refer to Oklahoma for help. Also, you can try to hire an experienced family law attorney in the county where he lives to assist in trying to get felony charges filed. This can be the very best way to get payments. Good luck.
Pete David Louden's answer It depends on if this is an original action, if there is an existing case, how long she has lived at her current location, if she has lived where it was filed, etc. It will be fact specific. Contact an attorney directly. After asking you a few questions to determine proper jurisdiction they will be able to answer your question.
Doak Willis' answer The child's parents are responsible for the medical and dental bills for their child. If divorced, the child support guidelines are used to determine the percentages and amounts that the parents are to be responsible for when the child incurs charges.
Pete David Louden's answer It could be that mother never pursued child support from the other fathers or could be the result of a shared parenting plan where the parents split equal time and have similar incomes. There could be several different explanations but the only way to tell you for sure would be to take a look at the other cases.
Pete David Louden's answer It would depend on your agreement and if any money is owed to the state. If all the money is owed to mom and she is willing to do an agreed order agreeing all support is paid in full you can do that. DO NOT rely on an agreement with her. You need to get a court order. If you do not get a court order it may bite you later in a big way.
Doak Willis' answer Does the child receive any benefits? Those benefits would go to the child. As for the parents, that amount depends on how much each draws monthly. It is computed on a schedule which is based upon their gross monthly income. You must have those figures before your question can be answered.
Pete David Louden's answer If the children have been living with you and wish to stay in your home the process would be to modify your order. After reviewing your case an attorney can tell you how to get this done and your chance of success.
Doak Willis' answer If the child was adopted by another party at the time the father signed his consent to the termination of his parental rights then his obligation to pay child support in the future is terminated upon the adoption being completed.If there was no adoption then the father must still continue paying his child support.
