Child support is something that many parents in Oregon must deal with. It is awarded in cases where parents are not living and raising the child together. Typically, the parent who the child lives with receives the payments and the other parent makes the payments.
Oregon law no longer has provisions for the visitation rights of grandparents. The current law does make provisions for non-parent visitation, according to The Spruce. If the child’s parents are not allowing grandparents the right to visit with the child, there may a chance to petition the court for visitation. However, it must be proven that the grandparent has a substantial relationship with the child, and the grandparent must be able to prove this relationship exists. In addition, it must be shown that denying visitation would harm the child in some way.
