Emergency Custody

Although divorce and custody cases can sometimes take months or even years to reach a conclusion, there are special laws that permit rapid legal intervention to remove minor children from harm’s way. Call us at 918-771-7045, at any time, 24/7, if you or a loved one are experiencing an emergency situation involving child abuse, domestic violence, any investigation by law enforcement or the Department of Human Services, or an arrest.

We assist people with obtaining emergency protective orders and orders for emergency child custody due to harm or the threat of imminent harm.

Law enforcement agencies may help you obtain a temporary protective order even when the courthouse is closed.

If you are being investigated, you have the absolute right to have an attorney present. You need an attorney to help you understand the circumstances and your rights, including your right to not make any statement to the police.

If you or a loved one have been arrested, call us to discuss legal representation. Too often, people make the mistake of devoting all their resources to paying bond, then they cannot afford to hire a qualified lawyer after making bond. An experienced attorney can request bond reduction so you can afford counsel and bond.
