How Oregon Courts Rule In Custody And Parenting Time Cases

In Oregon, family courts make decisions on custody and visitation matters based on what they perceive to be the “best interest” of the child. Some of the factors courts use in this regard include:

  • Age, physical and mental condition of the children and each parent
  • The educational needs of the children
  • The role each parent or the family has played and will play in the upbringing and care of the children
  • The willingness of each parent to actively support the child’s contact and relationship with the other parent

Because the judge hearing your case can only decide based on the information he or she receives during the legal process, it is essential that your case is presented persuasively. Having represented hundreds of parents in such matters, Lynn M. Myrick has the experience and advocacy skills needed for this task.

Negotiated Custody Arrangements Vs. Litigation

At our firm, we prefer to negotiate child custody and parenting time solutions whenever possible. In the majority of cases, this is better for all parties. This is especially so for the children who gain confidence and a sense of stability when they see their parents cooperating in child-rearing duties. However, if litigation is required, Grants Pass child custody attorney Lynn M. Myrick will vigorously represent you in court to protect your rights.
