Oklahoma Fathers Rights
When Does Responsibility for Daycare, Medical Costs, and Other Related Expenses Begin in Oklahoma?
As a Tulsa father's rights attorney, Brian L. Jackson is often asked about when parents become responsible for expenses associated with their child that are not included in child support. In Oklahoma, a court will typically require payment when a parent receives reasonable notice of the expense, such as a texted receipt. The parent is then required to pay within a reasonable amount of time, which is determined by the circumstances and the amount of money owed. Jackson advises expediency when it comes to paying these expenses and warns that failure to do so could result in a contempt of court charge. For more information, visit dads.law. Read more »

However, there are situations where you may not be responsible, such as if your court order explicitly states that extracurriculars must be agreed upon by both parties before any expenses are incurred.
