Joint Custody Versus Sole Custody
In Oregon, a judge does not have the authority to order the parties to share joint custody of the children, rather the parties must be in agreement. If the parties are unable to agree on a joint custody arrangement, the court must order sole custody to one parent or the other. If one parent is awarded sole custody or the parties agree that one person should be the sole custodial parent, that parent has the ability to make major decisions for the child. Those decisions include things such as what school they will attend, what religion the child will practice and what types of medical interventions will be authorized on behalf of the child.
Custody - Parenting Time
Custody and parenting time visitation are separate issues. For instance, a parent might have joint custody, but have an every other weekend style parenting plan. Or, a parent might have sole custody, but share a 50/50 parenting plan with the non-custodial parent. If the parents are unable to come to an agreement on parenting time or custody, the parties are required to engage in a mediation orientation and a mediation session
