Can you relocate with your child during divorce?

You know that your marriage is coming to an end and that divorcing your spouse is inevitable. While you firmly believe that relocating to someplace else in Oregon is what is best for you and your children, you are unsure if your decision will be supported by other people including your family and friends. Ultimately, the courts will weigh in on your request and determine if your decision will be in the best interest of your children. 

Factors used to determine child custody applied to pets

As beloved as pets are by many couples in Oregon, they do not have the same status as children when it comes to divorce disputes. While pets do not have legal status in California either, a newly signed law allows California judges to apply the same criteria to pet ownership disagreements that they use to determine custody of a child.

Child custody disputes can be extremely emotional, and parents may face a number of challenges while working through these matters. From concerns about legal issues to anxiety over one’s ability to spend an ideal amount of time with kids, custody battles can bring on many difficulties. Furthermore, some parents may feel the need to share their feelings and experiences on social media. Moreover, parents may share unrelated information online which could also affect their custody dispute, and this is important to keep in mind if you are active on social media and going through a dispute over child custody.
