Understanding Child Custody Laws in Oklahoma

Are child custody decisions really that lopsided in Oklahoma, though? What exactly are the laws in Oklahoma pertaining to child custody?

In Oklahoma, child custody laws are outlined in the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. When we discuss custody, there are two types of custody at issue: legal custody and physical custody.

Legal custody is the ability to make decisions regarding the child(ren)’s health, education, welfare, and more.
