Child Custody

Child Custody

While divorcing spouses can permanently resolve their disputes about property at the time of a divorce, issues concerning children can continue for years.

When parents divorce – or break up if they are not married – their child-rearing duties do not cease. If anything, parents find they have to communicate and cooperate, almost as much after a divorce or separation than when they were together.

We understand that families are a work in progress. Whether you are considering a divorce, have been served with divorce papers, or are estranged from the child’s other parent, you need an experienced family law attorney who understands Oklahoma child custody, child support and child visitation laws and procedures.
