In a Central Oklahoma Case:  Today, after more than three years of delays due to our client's former counsel, we were able to restore a father's rights to his child.  

Four years ago the Mother of the child made extremely serious allegationss of child sexual abuse against our client.  An Emergency Custody Order and a Victim Protective Order were entered against him.  Father had hired ineffective counsel which resulted in years of unwarranted delays during which Father could not legally see his child!

In Oklahoma, legal custody is an arrangement that primarily defines which parent or person gets to make what decisions for a minor child.  Who spends what time with the child (visitation) is a separate matter.

Married Parents.  When parents are married they have de facto joint custody, that is, neither has more authority in decision making than the other.  Each parent can make any (otherwise legal) decision they want regarding the minor child; e.g. enroll him in this school as opposed to that school, etc.
