Pete D. Louden: Fathers' Rights Lawyer
In Oklahoma, for children born out-of-wedlock, the mother is considered by the law to be the custodial parent unless and until the court says differently. If you want any rights to your child, you must go to court and get them awarded to you by the court. You have to be proactive and need to be persistent. Under the right circumstances and with a good paternity lawyer, fathers in Oklahoma can and do get paternal rights such as custody.
