In a divorce case involving children, in addition to legal custody there are other factors you will need to consider, including with which parent the child will live, during what time frames, and under what circumstances.

Parenting Time in Oregon
When the court is determining a fair parenting time plan (or schedule), as with legal custody, its primary consideration is whether the plan is in the child’s best interest. There are a number of factors that a judge will consider when determining what is an appropriate parenting plan, but it often comes down to relatively simple logistical questions, including each party’s work schedule, historic parenting time each parent has had with the child, where each parent lives, etc. To the furthest extent possible, an Oregon court will establish a parenting plan that allows both parents to enjoy a consistent and rewarding relationship with the child.
