Noncustodial Parent Is a Parent Who Has Physical Custody of a Child 182 Days per Year or Less

attorney in OklahomaVideo Transcribed: What does noncustodial parent mean under the Oklahoma Child Support Guidelines and Definitions? I’m Tulsa Child Support Collection Attorney, James Wirth.

That’s the question that we have today. We’re doing a series on Oklahoma Child Support. And specifically in this video, we’re talking about definitions and the definition for the noncustodial parent.

And the Oklahoma Child Support Guidelines have definitions, and those are available in Oklahoma Law. And that’s what we’re going. And it can be found in Title 43, Section 118A, Subsection 6. And that says, “Noncustodial parent means a parent who has physical custody of a child 182 days per year or less.”

So if you’ve got 182 days per year or less, you are the noncustodial parent. If you have more than 182 days per year, then you are the custodial parent under these definitions.

So if you’ve got questions about your child support case, this definition, how it applies to you, then you’re going to want to talk to an attorney about that privately, confidentially. Get that scheduled with somebody at my office. You can go online to makelaweasy.com.
