Legal Question

Asked on: 1/14/13, 12:44 pm

About a year after my wife & I seperated she moved to NM with our kids, we were living in OK & have a child support case & I have been paying child support for about 2 yrs now. I finally was able to get a default divorce because she would not sign. I had a standard child custody plan with the original divorce decree. Since I had to settle for the default divroce the judge in OK said he did'nt have jurisdiction to do the custody plan because the child support case was in a different county & she & the kids now live in NM. My kids were recently taken by CYFD in NM & temporary guardienship was given to my dad in NM. We had a meeting with CYFD & I told them I want my kids to live with me in OK I am stable, want & able to care for them. I was told by CYFD that they cannot give them to me & this I do not understand? How do I get permanent custody of my girls? They are ages 3, 5, & 6 years old.
