Under Oklahoma law, you as the petitioner must serve notice of the action on the then-living parents of the child or other person who has custody by personal service, by a sheriff or a licensed process server. If there are no living parents, then you must serve the grandparents or nearest relative by mail at least 10 days prior to the hearing date. Also, if the child has attained the age of 14, then notice must be served personally to the child as well.
You must also mail the notice to the parents and child’s last-known address at least 10 days prior to the hearing date. Its better to do this certified. You should read the order of the judge to see if special service was indicated, other than the service listed above. If you are unsure, it is advisable to contact the guardianship court to determine the preferred method of service.
