    A state gets jurisdiction over child custody by being the court of original jurisdiction (that is, where the first custody order was entered), or by virtue of a transfer of jurisdiction, normally under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). To transfer jurisdiction under that act, the new state must be the child's home state - that is, the state in which the child has resided for not less than the preceding six months.

    If the divorce occurred in Oklahoma, and the child still resides in Oklahoma, custody litigation will almost certainly continue to occur in Oklahoma.

    The child has lived in the State of Texas for awhile now...is there any paperwork we can get or download off the internet to be able to fill them out and send it to the judge. the judge in OK said that he would modify the divorce decree with those papers in the mail without a attorney...or do they have to go back to that state to be able to keep everything there? while they are living in Texas?

    I don't know of a place to download Oklahoma pleadings like you describe. If the father has resources, he may wish to get the help of a lawyer. If not, he may wish to explore these resources from the ABA.
