In cases of child custody, Oklahoma will decide on custody plans that are in the best interests of the child. Oklahoma does not automatically favor any parenting plan (like joint or sole custody), but bases their decisions solely on individual family situations.
Some of the factors the Oklahoma courts consider when ruling on child custody cases include, but are not limited to:
-The parents’ wishes
-The child’s wishes, if they are of an appropriate age and mindset
-Which parent is likely to allow and encourage the child to continue a healthy relationship with the other parent.
-Which parent will allow the other parent full parental and visitation rights.
