Child Custody / Establishment of Paternity
Our attorneys are parents. We provide a compassionate approach to our clients in contested child custody matters. We know the most important thing in your life is your child. We know that you choose your jobs, where you live, who you live with, and your activities based on how it affects your child. We know this because we do the same every day in our own lives.
We handle establishment of custody and paternity cases, establishment of parenting time, administrative paternity actions, and administrative support actions. We are trial lawyers. We have litigated hundreds of cases over almost 20 years where the focus has been on the legal standard of what is in the best interests of the child. There is no Oregon statutory preference between father or mother. Facts are what matter. Investigations govern facts. Trial advocacy proves facts that often tip the balance in custody determinations.
