My question involves guardianship in the State of: Oklahoma
In Oklahoma I became co-guardian of a grandson whose parents are both deceased. I started out as secondary guardian but over a year ago I became primary guardian when my grandson came to visit me with a bruise on him in the shape of a belt. The primary guardian admitted to the guardian ad litem that she had put the bruise there when spanking him. The child was also struggling with behavior problems and was suspended from school several times. When I got him he had just finished second grade for the second time.
SinceI have had him his grade level has greatly improved; he has never been suspended from school or had any detention. Now when he visits the other guardian he is being told that at 12 he can choose who he wants to live with.
My question is.... can a child choose their guardian?
