When will the judge consider a termination of parental rights?
2 attorney answers
As Mr. Louden pointed out, there's no private right of action to terminate a parent's rights in Oklahoma--no private party can sue another private party to relieve them of their parental rights. However, the court may be able to review its custody and support orders during or prior to the next annual guardianship review, and you do have a right to move the court to enforce its support order.

There are only two ways to terminate parental rights in Oklahoma.
1) the child is adopted or 2) the state can terminate rights for abuse or neglect in a deprived child case.
