Child Custody

Get the representation and counsel you deserve

While divorce is stressful for the couple involved, it can be even more devastating for children. Child custody plays a significant role in creating and maintaining a stable environment for children.

Attorney Rhonda in OKC is knowledgeable about Oklahoma child custody laws. At Inner Vision Legal, we work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure that you are able to be with your children and provide them with the emotional support they need during this trying time in their lives.


Child custody refers to the rights parents have to raise their child. Custody includes where the child physically lives, who the child can interact with, and who makes decisions about the child’s wellbeing.

Oklahoma law allows for several distinct types of child custody arrangements. Attorney Rhonda in OKC can help you sort through the different options to find what will work best for you and your family’s needs.

Child custody arrangements include but are not limited to:

  • Joint custody: Joint custody means the parents share custody. This means both parents make decisions on behalf of their children, and both make decisions about how the children will be raised. The parents decide on a visitation schedule that works for everyone involved.
  • Sole custody: Sole custody means one parent has control of the decision-making of the children. Visitation rights are typically granted to the other parent.


Ideally, you and your spouse will be able to come to an agreement about custody on your own. Attorney Rhonda in OKC is happy to assist you in that process.

If an agreement cannot be reached, the court will decide how to award custody. The judge will keep several factors in mind and decide the best interests of the children.

These factors include:
  • Each parent’s relationship with the children;
  • Whether there is a history of violence;
  • Whether there is a history of drug or alcohol abuse;
  • Each parent’s mental and physical health;
  • Whether there is a criminal record; and/or
  • The previous involvement of each parent in the children’s activities.

If only one parent is awarded custody, the other parent will be given visitation rights. Visitation may be supervised or unsupervised. The visitation schedule can also be decided by the court.

In Oklahoma, children can state a preference for which parent they would like to live with. This preference is given more weight once a child reaches age 12 or older, but the judge is not obligated to go by the wishes of the child.
