Obligor is the Person Obligated to Pay Child Support
Video Transcribed: What does Obligor mean under Oklahoma Child Support Definitions? I’m Oklahoma attorney James Wirth. We’re doing a series of videos on Oklahoma child support. And this case deals with this video, I should say deals with a definition.
The definition that we’re handling in this one is the obligor. So what does that mean? Well, pretty common sensically, obligor means the person obligated to pay child support pursuant to a child support order.
But this term is also defined in the Oklahoma Child Support Guidelines that are statutory. So you can look it up. It’s Title 43, Section 118A, Subsection 7. What it says is, “Obligor means the person who is required to make payments under in order for child support.” So pretty clear-cut there.
If you’ve got any questions about Oklahoma Child Support Guidelines, this definition, how it applies to your case, you’re going to want to talk to an attorney about that privately, confidentially. Get that scheduled with somebody at my office, you go online to makelaweasy.com.
