Navigating the Tulsa County family court system.
My name is Oklahoma lawyer James Wirth. If you’re involved in a custody case in Tulsa County, you may come across a judicial order of proper conduct. This standard form is used by the court to let parents know what is expected of them in regard to their children.
The form contains common-sense terms that are meant to ensure children are not put in the middle of their parents’ conflicts and that they have access to both parents in a safe and healthy manner.
What Does the Judicial Order of Proper Conduct Include?
The form includes various guidelines, such as not making children choose sides, not exposing them to inappropriate situations, and not criticizing the other parent in front of the children. It also emphasizes the importance of keeping the other parent informed and involved in their child’s life, including sharing information about school activities and extracurricular’s.
Other guidelines include being prompt in paying child support, not canceling visitation plans, and not using visitation as a means to continue arguments with the other parent. The form also encourages parents to provide unconditional love to their children and to avoid blaming or nagging the other parent about past issues.
How Can You Request a Judicial Order of Proper Conduct?
If you’re dealing with custody issues and think a judicial order of proper conduct may be helpful, it’s recommended that you speak with a Tulsa family law attorney. They can provide legal advice and guide you through the process of requesting the order.
