Will My Child Have to Testify in a Tulsa Custody Hearing?

Share with a friend
 

When custody is at issue in a divorce, or when unmarried parents separate, the process can be difficult not only on parents, but also on the children of the couple. If parents aren’t able to decide on custody, a court will decide for them.  This can be stressful and create worry for both parents, especially when it comes to decide whether a judge will make a child to testify in Tulsa.
Wondering who will get primary (more...)

Owning a business makes you particularly adept at ascertaining risks, competition, technology, and potential supply demands. However, have you ever considered a divorce as a major risk to a business?

The law affecting families in England and Wales is changing. Since legal aid was withdrawn in family law cases by legislation in 2012, resolving disputes amicably on divorce has never been more important. People are having to navigate a complex legal framework without legal support at the most emotionally fraught time of their lives.
But the law itself is failing divorcing couples by making compromise more difficult. It effectively encourages spouses to attribute blame even when no-one is at (more...)

Share with a friend
 

I remember reading someone’s Facebook post last year on December 31st, and it read, “Good-bye 2017, I WON’T miss you at all.” Apparently, 2017 was not a good year for her. While I understand the post—her husband left her in early January, 2017 and she was going through a divorce that entire year, I think she had to have surgery—minor surgery in 2017, and one of her parents died (more...)

Share with a friend
 

I have a friend who is in his fifties who travels a lot for work. So, he’s on planes every week. He told me that he was bored on a flight one time, so he decided to get a pen and a piece of paper and write down every woman he’s ever had sex with. He said the number was over 75 and he thinks he left out some women. The first word that came (more...)

 When a couple decides to separate, there are so many factors involved in what comes next. There are couples in which one person decides to move out immediately. There are couples who sell the home and both find new residences. And, there are couples who are separated but living in the same house.
 
There are a few reasons a couple might decide to remain living together for awhile. Perhaps the biggest reason: the kids. Maybe they want (more...)

When an individual requests a protective order, many times the offender whom the protective order controls, is not aware of the additional consequences of the order. There are provisions the offender must follow in addition to staying away from the victim and their place of residence and employment. 
One of the requirements the offender must follow is to surrender all firearms as well as being prohibited from purchasing any additional firearms.

Many couples become confused with the child support and custody arrangement when they were not married before or after their child was born. However, once you become a parent, there are immediate rights and responsibilities attached. Knowing these rights and responsibilities is crucial in a child support and custody case.

 
The most beneficial first step in this case is to retain an experienced Tulsa child support attorney as soon as possible to preserve these rights and enforce the (more...)

Share with a friend
 

In England and Wales, there are still only five ways to get a divorce and three of those involve living separately for at least two years.
Divorce in the UK can be messy, drawn out and extremely painful for the whole family.
But it doesn’t have to be like this.

Desperately Looking To Meet Someone? This Article Is For YOU

Share with a friend
 

I work with and personally know so many people who are desperately looking to meet someone; to find their “soulmates”, and who feel a sense of emptiness and loneliness because they are not part of a couple.
Generally, finding love later in life can be difficult. As we age, we have to assume that each of us is “fully baked” when you meet.  Trying to mold and shape someone who has already lived a (more...)
