Oregon Grandparent Rights Lawyers
As of 2001, Oregon no longer specifically provides rights to the grandparents of children. However, any third party who has established a "child-parent" relationship with a child may petition the court for for the custody, placement, or guardianship of that child.
The law places a great deal of importance of the rights of the natural or legal parents of a child. Accordingly, any third party (including grandparents) seeking custody, parenting time, or guardianship of a child should consult with a lawyer experienced in this area of law. The Oregon statute which provides third party rights is relatively complicated, and careful planning and presentation is the key to success.
