Collect Evidence for Your Lawyer to Present in Court
Video Transcribed: Hello, I am Oklahoma father’s rights attorney Jason Lyle, and I am the Dads.Law attorney for northeastern Oklahoma.
I wanted to talk to you about a situation that my clients sometimes find themselves in, and that’s if they sincerely feel like the parent of their child or children is unfit to take care of their child or children. So if you find yourself in that situation, where you just feel like for whatever reason, that the mother or the other parent of your child or children is just not fit, we use that word fit in the law and in family law to mean in a position to properly take care of, not dangerous to, not a danger to those children. If you feel like that person’s not fit, what do you do?
Well, you’re on the right track by consulting an attorney because an attorney, again, an experienced family law attorney, should be able to tell you, A, whether or not your suspicions, if proven correct, would matter to the point that it makes it worthwhile to go into court over it, B, if those suspicions do prove to be valuable to the consideration of custody and visitation, how do you collect evidence to prove it? Because you have to prove those things in court. You can’t just say them. What evidence is useful and what evidence is not useful? A lot of people come to my office with text messages and piles of online Facebook posts. There’s a right way and a wrong way to use those. And then C, do you need an emergency, considering the evidence that you have? If the parent is unfit, it is your responsibility to protect that child from that unfitness. What does that mean so that you don’t get in trouble with DHS?
These are all very scary things, and if you have this problem that you consider the parent of your child or children unfit because of something that’s going on in their life, you need to consult an experienced family law attorney that can help you to take that matter to court in the way in which it needs to be taken to court.
So if you have any questions about this for a Tulsa child custody lawyer or any other family law matters, again, my name is Attorney Jason Lyle, and I’m the Dads.Law attorney for northeastern Oklahoma. I would be happy to consult with you. You can find my contact information at Dads.Law.
