How Social Media Can Affect Your Case

Most everyone uses social media in some capacity or another. Whether you use your online platforms for professional reasons or for staying connected with friends, it’s important to understand the potential consequences of logging on. If you are involved in a legal battle, negotiations, or modifications of any kind, the content you post on your social media platforms could work against you in court. Many people unwittingly provide proof against themselves via social media, or at the very least provide the other side of the argument with compelling evidence that you are dishonest. Though this may seem impossible, social media

Navigating Agreement Modifications

The phrase “things change” is a relatively vague and unhelpful one. Despite this, the sentiment holds true in nearly every aspect of our lives, even when it comes to the law. Though many people see the law as firm and rigid, there are many situations in which the law is as fluid as our lives are. When it comes to binding contracts, especially, there are situations where it is inappropriate to continue with the same terms and agreements after a situation has changed. It would be foolish, and in some cases illegal, to continue to follow an agreement that no

What Is Involuntary Termination of Parental Rights?

One of the most difficult aspects of the divorce process is determining child custody of the divorcing couple’s children. In some situations, a parent may lose their custody rights due to their past behavior. It is also possible for one parent to petition their local family court to have their child’s other parent’s parental rights terminated under certain conditions. Additionally, a court may decree that a parent’s parental rights are terminated in light of criminal behavior, particularly offenses involving child abuse. Involuntary termination of parental rights is one of the most severe penalties a parent can face, and most courts

Can Oklahoma Take Child Support From Your Unemployment Benefits?

Although most people think of child support in terms of divorce, parenting agreements, and all the other considerations that come with family law, the fact is that every child is entitled to receive financial support from their parents.

How Does Oklahoma Determine When a Child Support Obligation Ends?

Oklahoma Child Custody and Living Arrangements: When a Child Wants to Choose

When the end of a relationship or divorce is imminent, most parents’ primary concern is who will receive custody of their children.

When child custody disputes arise, both parents and sometimes even the child themselves often have strong feelings about how custody arrangements should proceed. In this situation, procuring the services of a skilled Oklahoma City child custody attorney is essential to ensure

How Does Oklahoma Determine Unfit Parents?

In most cases, divorcing parents want to spend as much time as possible with their children, and Oklahoma courts operate under the assumption that allowing a child to maintain contact with both parents is ideal for all involved. However, when there is uncertainty regarding whether remaining with a parent is truly in the child’s best interests, the courts must determine that person’s fitness to continue parenting. If you have been accused of being an unfit parent—or if you fear your former spouse is unable to provide for the best interests of your child—learn as much as possible about the factors

Establishing Custody Rights for Unwed Fathers in Illinois

These days, fewer and fewer couples choose to marry before having children. The most recent United States Census revealed that nearly 40% of all births in the United States occur to unmarried women. In some cases, unmarried couples choose to stay with one another, but in many others—25% of all children in 2020—the child resides with only one parent. In the vast majority of these cases, that parent is the mother. When it comes to unwed parents and single-parent households, Illinois is consistent with the national average, with more than 36% of all births in a recent year occurring to

What If Your Illinois Child Refuses to Visit Their Non-Custodial Parent?

When an Illinois couple divorces, one of the primary concerns of all parties involved is the children’s primary living situation. Many parents choose to share physical custody, requiring children to live part of the time with one parent and part of the time with the other. Still, others choose to assign one parent primary physical custody and allow children to visit the non-custodial parent on weekends and holidays or at other times of their choosing. While children may take some time to become accustomed to this new living arrangement, most eventually adapt well, visiting the non-custodial parent enthusiastically or without
