I am in Oklahoma. My daughter has a son though was never married…

Customer Question
I am in Oklahoma....
I am in Oklahoma. My daughter has a son though was never married to his father. Dad has been court ordered to pay support but is not. The judge we have will do nothing. He was introduced with pictures of my grandson at a party where two people were making out on the bed he was sleeping on. The judge granted an emergency protective order after seeing the picture then after their testimony (she is 20, he is 30 no job, no house and lives in her parents basement) where their stories did not match and they both pleaded the fifth, the judge decided there was nothing to worry about. What does someone do when they have a judge with such poor judgement and he is unwilling to enforce any of his own rulings?

My suggestion is to call children's protective services and seek custody of your grandchild yourself. In this situation, where he cannot get a straight answer from either of the parents, the judge's hands were tied and I am surprised that he did not call in children's services himself. I suppose that your daughter is lucky that he didn't call in protective services himself.

 

GOOD LUCK

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
