In many child custody cases in Oklahoma City, the parents may negotiate a suitable custody and visitation agreement through their family law attorneys and submit it for approval to the family courthouse. However, when the other party doesn’t act responsibly for your child’s best interest, it may be necessary to get a hearing and judge’s ruling on the issue.

Key Child Custody Issues in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, the majority of child custody matters involve some level of joint custody. That means both parents enjoy equal decisions on significant issues such as health care, education, nutrition, curfew, extracurriculars, and religious affiliation—among others. However, rarely are both parents on 100% equal footing, so you should keep these legal positions in mind when making a child custody arrangement.

It would be best to make a compelling custody claim about why you should have custody or full visitation privileges.

Courts in Oklahoma Will Decide What Is in the Best Interests of the Children

The three main types of parental custody available in the state of Oklahoma are: 

  • Joint: Having joint legal custody means that you are on equal footing in parenting. Neither parent has greater legal rights, and the non-custodial parent generally has defined visitation privileges. This can be flexible when parents work together at a practical level; however, visitation schedules are enforceable.
  • Sole: One parent may be given sole custody of one or more minor children in rare custody cases. This is often due to an unfit parent who poses a child's danger. In addition, substance abuse, alcoholism, criminal behavior, or moral turpitude can result in the court either temporarily or permanently granting sole custody.
  • Split: When more than one child is involved in custody negotiations, the Oklahoma courthouse might decide that one sibling lives most of the time with one parent while another sibling lives with the other parent. In such decisions, parents will likely still have legal rights to their children even if they have limited physical custody. Split custody is unusual but may be granted in some child custody cases.
