- Q. How do I get a form to appeal termination of parental rights
- A: An appeal is more involved than filling out a form. There are several steps and time limitations. Meet with an attorney that handles appeals and they will be able to fully explain the process and help you file the appeal.
- Q. can my 5 year old decide he doesn’t want to go to a visitation?
- A: No. A five year old cannot make decisions concerning visitations. With that said, If you believe there are legitimate safety issues you should consult with an attorney to discuss options. I wish you the best of luck with your case.
- Q. What can I do legally about a 17 year old texting and sending inappropriate pictures to my 11year old daughter?
- A: Call the police first thing tomorrow morning and show them the messages.
- Q. Is a medical copay considered a major medical expense?
- A: If you are asking if a copay is considered an uncovered medical expense for which you would owe your percentage under a child support order, a copay is an expense not paid by insurance so you would owe your percentage. If your question is in a different context please provide more information. I wish you the best of luck with your case.
- Q. If parental rights are terminated the order for child support is terminated except CS acrued before termination?
- A: There are two ways to terminate parental rights in Oklahoma. 1) the child is adopted or 2) the state can terminate rights for abuse or neglect in a deprived child case. When rights are terminated, that does not stop child support. Child support is still paid unless the child is adopted. If the child is adopted, ongoing support stops but any past due support would still be owed.
- Q. My daughter was kidnapped by her mother and i live in oklahoma. She took her to alaska now cps is adopting her out.
- A: 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.
- Q. Is there any way to find documentation for a paternity test that was done in the early 90's for Child support?
- A: You can get a copy of the child support order from the court clerk.
- Q. Does a family court judge change things when one party lies to the court and it is documented in a court minute order
- A: 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.
- Q. What is "motion to settle" vs "trial" after reaching settlement through mediation in a divorce in Oklahoma?
- A: Motion to settle resolves an order that was either agreed upon or decided by the judge and the other party does not sign. Purpose is to get the court to sign an order. A trial means there is no agreement and the court conducts a hearing "trial" to decide all contested issues. Setting a motion for hearing is usually faster than scheduling a trial. If you do not have an attorney I would suggest that you get one.
