Establishing parenting time can help with support payments

Finances are typically on both spouses' minds during a divorce and understandably so. Even though the recent recession is in the rearview mirror for most people, there may still be a feeling of insecurity when it comes to jobs and finances. This can be especially true for Oregon parents who must also ensure the continued security of their children. Luckily, child support payments made by one parent to the other can help establish financial security for any children involved, and the amounts ordered are typically based, at least partially, on how much parenting time each party has.

Mediation can help resolve child custody disputes

Deciding who should have what responsibilities in a custody agreement is rarely an easy decision. Questions such as "Should he live with the primary caretaker?" or "Who is responsible for health insurance?" can arise, possibly signaling the beginning of a battle for child custody. While simply wanting as much time with a child is quite understandable, staying calm during these negotiations can be one of the most beneficial actions that may be in the best interest of the child.
