Corvallis Custody & Parenting Time Attorney

Types of Child Custody in Oregon

Determining child custody is one of the most emotionally difficult aspects of divorce. When divorcing parents are unable to agree on child custody and parenting time on their own, the court would have to make the decision for them.

In Oregon, there are two types of child custody:

  • Physical custody- This determines where the child will live most of the time
  • Legal custody- This determines who gets to decide about the child’s education, health, religion, and other concerns

Although the court usually grants physical custody to just one parent while the non-custodial parent receives visitation or parenting time, the court is most of the time in favor of granting joint legal custody. However, if a joint legal custody is not in the best interest of the child such as when one parent has a history of abuse, the court will likely award legal custody to one parent.
