You could talk to the prosecutor and see if he will dismiss the case. If the prosecutor dismisses the case, it could be won without going to court.

If the prosecutor doesn't dismiss the case, then, you could ask for a hearing before the judge. At the hearing, the prosecutor would have the burden of proving that you violated a traffic law. If the prosecutor doesn't meet his burden, the judge should find you not guilty.

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.

The security deposit is to insure the rental is returned to the landlord in the shape you received it at the start of the lease with normal wear and tear excepted.The rental amount is a separate issue. The landlord may state that you left the rental in poor shape requiring them to use that deposit to put the rental back into a condition that would allow them to re-let the unit.

Kyle Persaud's answer
The judge should give you a hearing within ten days of granting emergency custody to your cousin. At the hearing, argue why custody should be returned to you.

For a nonparent to gain custody, the non parent has the burden of proof.

The nonparent must prove that you are unfit.

If the nonparent can't prove you are unfit, the judge should return the children to you.

Q: can i sue my mom for not paying my medical bills even though I'm 18

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law, Collections, Health Care Law and Small Claims for Oklahoma on
Answered on Apr 9, 2019
Kyle Persaud's answer
If your mother agreed to pay your medical bills, then, legally, you can sue.

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.

Kyle Persaud's answer
Was there actually a foreclosure lawsuit filed?

A foreclosure lawsuit is when there is a mortgage on a home, and the creditor files a suit against the homeowner, arguing that the homeowner has not paid the mortgage, and the creditor seeks to repossess the home.

You are talking about a "replevin" and an "order of delivery." That's different from a foreclosure. A "replevin" lawsuit occurs when someone claims that you have items that belong to him, and files suit against you,...
