I entered into a marriage 2 months ago, and at first it was great. However now we fight constantly and we do not live together.
Annulment is tricky... there are only certain circumstances under which you can get an annulment, and the analysis is pretty fact intensive. I would recommend that you speak with an experienced Oklahoma family law attorney for a more in depth analysis of your situation. Time is of the essence... in some cases, the more time that passes, the more difficulty in getting an annulment.
I have successfully obtained an annulment for several of my clients, and would be happy to speak with you further about this issue, if you would like.See question

You can talk to someone at DHS, and they will help you get soonercare (health care for the child) if you're eligible, and can help you with information about WIC for help with formula, and other programs that might give you assistance.
However, when you involve DHS, they will likely want to pursue the father for child support, as it is his duty to assist in raising this child. If the father would be willing to help you financially, perhaps you wouldn't need to involve DHS? My two cents (which is worth what you paid for it) is that you shouldn't worry about getting the father in trouble. Yes, you shouldn't have lied about your age. But in my opinion, he knew better, or at least should have known better, than to have a sexual relationship with someone as young as you are. Raising a child is a huge, life changing responsibility, and in my opinion, you have bigger things to worry about than protecting him from his mistake.
Again, just my two cents. Best of luck with your new baby!See question
Without serving the papers can court have hearing without the noncustodial parent. What happens if they could not serve the papaers to me at all
In most circumstances, notice to the other party is required before a hearing is held. However, a couple of exceptions that come to mind are 1) an emergency ex-parte hearing, and 2) if the judge allowed them to give you notice by publication. If they alleged some emergency situation concerning the wellbeing of the child, they may have been able to get an emergency hearing without notice to you. However, if this is the case, the law requires a show cause hearing within 10 days, and they should serve you with notice of that hearing.
If they have attempted to serve you, but have been unsuccessful, it's possible that the judge allowed them to serve you by publication, which means that they would have published a notice of the hearing in a legal newspaper. Aside from something along those lines, they should not have been able to hold a hearing without showing that you have been served.See question
Two of my children live with their dad in Wyoming & he has legal custody of them. I live in Oklahoma now but I have just learned that their dad lost his job because he wrecked his work truck & since he damaged their property he was told to go to t...
I'm so sorry you find yourself in this situation. The first question that comes to mind is: in which state was the latest court order regarding custody of the children entered? If the court order is from Oklahoma, then you could file an application for emergency custody here. However, if the custody order is from Wyoming, then you would really need to seek out a Wyoming attorney for advice on how to proceed. If the custody order is from neither Oklahoma nor Wyoming, then I would still think that you would need a Wyoming attorney, because jurisdiction will lie with the state in which the children have resided for the last 6 months, which I'm assuming is Wyoming.
I wish you the best.See question
I never had a job during our marriage, but rather re-designed and decorated 3 homes we purchased. He never paid me, and now he's claiming I never did the work, and all the work was done by an architect. (The Judge has been holding court in my ho...
The first thought that comes to mind regarding your situation is that you need to trust the lawyer representing you. If they have lost your trust, you should find another attorney. There are a lot of issues here, and in your situation, it is very important that you are properly represented to ensure that you can afford the care you need.
I would advise that you make an appointment with your current attorney to discuss your concerns. If you feel that your attorney is not properly representing your interests, or has otherwise lost your trust, I would advise that you get a consultation with another attorney.See question
This woman and child live in Oklahoma. She contacted me on Facebook stating that she had a child with my husband although she had sex with several men and does not have proof that my husband is the child's biological father. No DNA test was ever p...
In my opinion, she is going to have to have more than just a claim that your husband is the child's father to get anything done. She's going to need a DNA test or some documentation showing that your husband is the legal father of the child. If a DNA test is performed, and the child is your husband's, there will likely be a child support order entered, but she can only get back child support for the last 5 years.See question
This will be our first court date after the issue of the temporary order . I tried to tell her that this date will most likely be fairly quick ( although I really don't know since I haven't gone through this ) and that she needs to be in school...
I would think the answer to your question depends on what is on the docket for this upcoming hearing. If custody and/or visitation is an issue that will be addressed in this hearing, I would bring your daughter, and request that the judge speak with her, since she is of the statutory age to express an opinion as to custody and visitation.See question
I'm 16 and right now no one has custody of me what would my dad do to get full custody of me.
I would need more detail to be able to answer this question. I'm trying to think of a situation where it's possible that no one has custody of you. Are you in foster care? Does someone have a guardianship for you?See question
If I am the guardian why would the court appoint an attorney
A Guardian Ad Litem is an attorney for the child. The attorney's job is to investigate the situation and make a recommendation to the court regarding what is in the best interests of the child.See question
I got divorce six months ago in Oklahoma. Ex-wife now lives in another state. We have an $11,000 joint loan that we forgot to include before the divorce was final. I have been paying the entire loan payment every month myself. I asked her to start...
The first question that comes to my mind is, does your decree state that each party takes the debts that are in their name alone, and does this loan happen to be in your name alone? If so, you may be in trouble. However, if it is in both your names, my thought is that it is a joint debt that are both liable for. I think we could fix this, though I'd have to do a little research to find the correct "vehicle" to get it before the court.
If she volunteers to pay for half of it, yes, I believe a properly drafted and executed contract would be enforceable.
You can deduct the amount from your child support, but I would want that as a provision in the contract or order, just so there's no confusion if she ever accuses you of not paying your child support.See question
