Right now you need to determine how to resolve these disputes in a way that is best for your children.
A custody matter may come before the court in a number of different ways.
After a petition is filed and served on the other party, the served party will have an opportunity to respond. After a response is filed, mediation and parenting classes are typically required. If the parents can agree on the majority of issues, a stipulated judgment and parenting plan is drafted and proposed to the court. If the parents disagree on the majority of issues, the parents go to trial.
We regularly work with clients who also live in Newberg, Tigard, McMinnville, Tualatin, Oregon City, Wilsonville, and other surrounding communities.
We appear at the courthouses in Washington County, Clackamas County, Multnomah County, and Yamhill County. We can appear in other counties by request.
Every parenting situation is different, and the laws regarding these issues can be complex and overwhelming. This is why having an attorney advise you on how to proceed is important. You want to make sure the court makes a custody determination that is in the best interest of your children.
