Relocation Requests In Oregon
If you plan to move more than 60 miles from a current location and share custody with another parent, you need to give the other parent prior written notice of your intended move and file a copy of that notice with the court. These cases can be very challenging and require a special area of expertise to understand the existing Oregon law as it relates to relocation. As with most child custody issues, the court will focus on the best interests of the child and not what either parent believes is the most convenient or typical.
That said, relocation offers an opportunity to get a good mediator and examine how everybody’s needs can be met. These issues can be complex and nuanced and need to be approached correctly; these issues require expertise and can almost never be handled adequately by novice family law attorneys. There may be grey areas and arguments to be made that are not immediately apparent.
