Pete David Louden's answer More facts would need to be know to give you an answer such as whether or not there is a custody order, how long ago the child left Oklahoma with the mother, what legal actions you have taken and when, etc. Contact an attorney directly to discuss options.
Doak Willis' answer No they are not correct. The law encourages the custodial parent to allow additional time for visitation with the child or children and they cannot use that is any modification hearing in the future against you. Usually the parties share the travel expense and your facts show that you are following the intent of the law and you should not worry about the non custodial parent trying to use your past actions against you.
Pete David Louden's answer It seems that in most family law matters one party, or both, allege the other party has lied. If the court finds that someone has not been truthful with the court that person can be sanctioned.
Kelli Y Allen's answer I'm not sure of your questions, but as long as you are permanent residents, you don't need to worry about an immigration issue. You may want to consider applying for naturalization.
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 Unless the attorney agreed to accept service for his client you must first serve the defendant personally and not the attorney. If the attorney agreed to the service, you should file a motion for default judgment and get an order for hearing date set and file it with the motion and serve it on the attorney. If they don't show for that hearing, you will win by default.
Doak Willis' answer Immediately hire you an attorney who practices guardianship law and family law. Emergency guardianship may be hard to get by them unless they can show your children are in imminent danger to their health, safety, or possible death.
Doak Willis' answer Your question is confusing. This appears to be a question concerning heirship and whether you can prove you were an heir of the deceased. You stated they wanted DNA evidence which a test can be taken but your facts don't address whether it was ordered or not and the results. You should make an appointment with an attorney and see that attorney and explain all the facts of the case. The attorney can better advise you then. If there was a judgment, you must see that attorney within 30 days in...
Doak Willis' answer You would need to have your motion to modify along with an order for hearing for the Judge assigned to the case to sign and give it a date for hearing. Once that is done, the motion and order for hearing are filed in the Court Clerks office and a copy of each of those documents is then served personally upon the other party.
Pete David Louden's answer The preference of the children could be considered by the court and the boyfriend could try to file a guardianship. To get a guardianship over a parent the court would have to find the parent unfit. Cases like this are fact dependant and really cant be fully addressed in this format. To get a reliable answer contact an attorney and discuss in detail all the fine points of the situation and then they can give you an opinion.
Pete David Louden's answer This is going to be fact dependant. Best answer is contact an Oklahoma attorney and fully explain what has happened up to this point and then they will be able to explain your options.
