What are the different types of child custody in Oklahoma?

The three different types of child custody in Oklahoma are full custody, joint custody, and joint custody with a primary parent.  First, full custody is when one parent has complete control over all aspects of the children.  However, this does not mean the other parent would not have visitation rights.  Second, joint custody is when the parents share the children and all major decisions regarding the children.  Major decisions are defined as schooling, religion, healthcare, and extracurricular activities.  Lastly, joint custody with a primary parent allows for the parents to share the child, but the ultimate decision making power for major decisions would lie with only one parent, the primary parent.  The primary parent would still have to consult with the non-primary parent, but in the event they disagreed, the primary parent would have the final say.
