How Do I Get Parenting Time in Oregon?
Parenting time is scheduled time for a child to be in the care of a parent. In a parenting plan agreed to by the parents or ordered by the court, the minimum amount of time each parent will have with the child is stated. The laws for parenting time are the same for married and unmarried parents if paternity has been established. Formerly called visitation, one parent may file a petition with the court for parenting time.
A court usually determines the amount of parenting time in divorce and custody cases. The parent without custody gets the parenting time based on factors such as the age of the child and the distance between the parent’s homes. Once a parenting time schedule and order are set, the parents must follow it. If circumstances change for either parent or the child, the parent seeking the change may file a petition with the court to change in terms of parenting time.
