Pete David Louden's answer There is no law against people having security cameras in their homes. Almost every place you go now has security cameras: homes, schools, parking lots, stores, government buildings, etc.
Doak Willis' answer If the child resides in Oklahoma the law states that the mother of the child has custody until the father of the child is determined by paternity testing. The mother needs to hire an attorney now to possible get the child returned to her until parentage is determined through a paternity proceeding.
However, it may not be in your best interests, in the long run, to do this. A lawsuit will likely take you several years and cost you a lot of money. It could also destroy any relationship you may have with your mother. Lawsuits between family members are always the most contentious (at least in my experience.) You're opening yourself up to unpleasantness you will likely regret later.
If you are the father, were you ever married to the mother? If not, were you ever adjudicated the father? Did the child reside in your home the first two years of his life? Were you named on the birth certificate?
If you were never married to the mother, were never adjudicated the father, and the child did not reside in your home the first two years of his life, and you were not named on the birth certificate, then you may not have...
Doak Willis' answer You are an adult at age 18. Anything you purchased with your own money is your property no matter where you live. Even if your parents gave you money as a gift or you earned it, anything you purchase with those proceeds is your property.
Doak Willis' answer There is no legal method of allowing your daughter to move out on her own. However, many children that age do so and DHS is reluctant to get involved. As for you being liable for trouble she may cause, there is that possibility that you could indeed be held liable for her tortious actions.
Doak Willis' answer If the money is in a bank, you should take your son to the bank with his I.D. and your I.D. and explain the situation. The bank may let you sign for him as his parent without having to spend money on getting a guardianship, which usually would require you hiring an attorney which would cost a fair amount. If the bank will allow you tom sign, problem solved.
Doak Willis' answer Yes in Oklahoma when you move a certain number of miles from the Jurisdiction where you were divorced you must give some detailed notice and there is a time limitation also before you can move. Go see an attorney to do it right.
Kyle Persaud's answer If you move a distance of more than 75 miles, you have to notify your ex at least 60 days before you move. If your ex does not file a written objection in court within 30 days of receiving the notice, you can move.
If your ex files a written objection in court, the court will hold a hearing on whether you can move. At your hearing, you can present evidence that your ex does not have a relationship with the child, and this can weigh in favor of the court allowing you to move.
Kyle Persaud's answer 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.
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.
