There are two types of legal custody in Oregon, sole and joint. The latter maybe ordered only if both parties agree. Frequently, because of the overall discord that is involved that has led to a divorce in the first place, parties are unable to effectively co-parent, which is vital to a working joint legal custody arrangement. With sole custody, one parent is designated with making the major decisions regarding the child, such as health care, education religious training, extracurricular activities, etc. Parenting time is a separate consideration. ORS 107.137 provides a number of factors that a court will consider in determining custody and an appropriate parenting plan. Bryan will help guide you with a strategic approach in approaching these two very important considerations.
