Understanding Custody and Parenting Time
Before you can reach the right solution, it is important to understand your goals and how those goals fit within the law. Many parents are not aware of the difference between child custody and parenting time in Oregon:
- Child custody is the legal term that describes which parent will have decision-making authority for the child. For some parents, custody is the important issue. You know better than anyone else what is best for your children. What school should they go to? What doctor will care for them? The custodial parent will make these kinds of decisions.
- Parenting time, sometimes called visitation, refers to the amount of time each parent gets to spend with their child. How much time does each parent get with them? Where will they spend holidays? We will help you develop a detailed parenting time plan to protect your right to maintain your parental relationship.
Life rarely remains exactly the same from year to year. When significant changes occur, we will represent you in child custody and parenting time modification proceedings.
