Child Custody

There is no specific definition for "physical" or "legal" custody in Oregon. If the parents share custody, it automatically means that they have joint legal custody and have equal rights to make all the critical decisions regarding the child. It doesn't matter whether the child lives with each parent for some specified period of time or exclusively with only one of them.

Oregon courts welcome joint custody, but it may only be awarded if both spouses want it. If there is any dispute, the court will decide custody at its own discretion, weighing such factors as the child's relationship with both parents and other family members, the interest of the parents and their involvement in the child's life before the divorce, the ability of each parent to facilitate and encourage the close relationship between the child and the other parent, any history of abuse in the family, and other facts the court may consider significant.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Oregon-based company. So that's why I used OregonOnlineDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found oregononlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
