Salem And Eugene-Area Parenting Time Attorneys

In Oregon, the court can only award joint custody if both parents are in agreement. The state takes the position that if the parents can't agree on these matters during the divorce proceeding, they will not be able to agree on important custodial decisions. In these situations, the judge will have to decide which of the two parents will receive sole custody. Generally, the court will award custody to the primary caretaker, regardless of whether it is the mother or father. The parent who does not become the sole custodial parent will receive parenting time — also known as visitation.

We will work with our client to develop a parenting-time schedule for the noncustodial parent that will foster the growth of the child. Ultimately, if a plan cannot be worked out between the two parents, the judge will write one. No matter how straightforward or complex your family law situation, it is important to have a skilled lawyer by your side. Do not hesitate to contact our firm to schedule a consultation and discuss your unique matter in greater detail.
