The existence of a guardianship does not inherently override parental rights; however, when a guardianship is in place, a parent will have to contest the guardianship in order to regain physical custody of their child.

A guardianship grants decision-making power for the child's well-being, but parents may still have rights. It's a complex situation, so consult with one of our experienced family lawyers if you have specific questions!

Here's how to fight back:

1. Understand your rights:
- Board hearing vs. notification: You have a right to a board hearing for certain discharges (Other Than Honorable) or if you meet specific criteria.
- Representation: You have the right to legal counsel, both military and civilian.
- Evidence and testimony: You can present evidence, call witnesses, and testify on your behalf.

2. Secure strong legal support:
- Experienced military defense attorney: They understand the complexities of administrative discharge proceedings and protect your rights.
- Build a solid defense: Gather evidence, witness statements, and refute accusations.
- Navigate the process: They guide you through each step, ensuring fairness and due process.

3. Take proactive steps:
- Don't delay: Contact a lawyer immediately upon receiving separation notification.
- Cooperate, but don't waive rights: Respond to inquiries honestly, but don't admit guilt or waive legal rights.
- Prepare for the board hearing: Work with your lawyer to gather evidence, practice testimony, and present your case effectively.

Remember:
- Consequences are serious: Discharge impacts benefits, future employment, and reputation.
- You have options: A strong defense can significantly improve your chances of a favorable outcome.

Meet 'voir dire'! It's a legal term for jury selection.
You may have heard this fancy term on TV before. It simply means "to speak the truth," and it's the crucial process where lawyers question potential jurors to ensure a fair trial.

Why is voir dire important?

- Impartiality: Lawyers want jurors who can set aside biases and decide the case based on evidence, not personal beliefs.
- Understanding: Knowing jurors' backgrounds and experiences helps lawyers choose those who can grasp the specific issues of the case.
- Right to a fair trial: Both sides deserve a jury that will listen objectively and reach a just verdict.

What happens during voir dire?

Lawyers ask jurors questions about their lives, experiences, and opinions.
The judge may also ask questions.
Jurors can be excused for cause (e.g., having a personal connection to the case) or through peremptory challenges (limited number of excuses without reason).

Here's a breakdown of what you should consider:

General Etiquette:
- Obtain permission: It's generally considered respectful to seek permission from the judge before leaving the courtroom for any reason, including using the restroom. Briefly state your request and wait for the judge's acknowledgment.
- Choose the right time: Avoid interrupting crucial moments like witness testimony or closing arguments. If possible, wait for a natural break in the proceedings.
- Be discreet: Move quietly and avoid causing disruption as you exit and return to the courtroom.

Potential Exceptions:
- Medical emergencies: If you have a pressing medical need, informing the judge and leaving immediately might be necessary.
- Long hearings: In extended hearings, judges may announce restroom breaks at intervals.

Believe it or not, while ink was flowing freely across the nation, Oklahoma held onto its needles until 2006, the last state to legalize ink art in the USA! That's right, before then, Oklahomans either crossed state lines for their tattoos or went underground.

So, why the ink-ihibition? The official story's hazy, but rumor has it that a certain lawmaker's daughter got a tattoo and that didn't sit well with him.

It's a common phrase, but how does it actually work? Here's the deal:

- Yes, you can "plead the fifth" in Oklahoma! This means you have the right to remain silent under the Fifth Amendment. It protects you from being forced to testify against yourself in any criminal case.
- Why is this important? It's your right to protect yourself from accidentally incriminating yourself. You're innocent until proven guilty, and the Fifth Amendment ensures that.

But remember, it's complex! Don't try to navigate this alone. Before you even consider pleading the fifth, talk to a trustworthy criminal defense attorney. They can guide you through your legal options and protect your rights.
