The family court in Oklahoma uses several different factors to determine child custody. The process begins with whats called the best interest of the child. Its a presumption that both parents should co-parent and have equal access to the children and that this is in the best interest of the children. Many times though whats truly in the best interest of the children is more complex than a simple presumption in favor of co-parenting. Other factors that the court considers in whose been the primary custodian. This is more of the Court looking to keep child raising as its been in the past or maintaining the status quo.
Additional factors in determining child custody is the overall likelihood that the child’s needs will be met. The Courts look to each parents ability to provide a stable home for the children devoid of as many disruptions as possible. The courts look to the parents involvement with the children and how they’ll add to the child’s development.
