Selling Property During a Divorce

In most states, when one spouse to a marriage files for a divorce, an automatic stay results. That stay prohibits either party from disposing of any property in any way other than ordinary living expenses without order of court or agreement by the other spouse. It operates to maintain the status quo during the pendency of the proceedings while the court decides how to divide the parties’ property. If a state doesn’t have an automatic stay, a court is going to frown on any unilateral disposition of property without its permission or the consent of the other spouse.

Child Custody Disputes Between Parents and Third Parties

Family law cases involving issues of child custody and/or parenting time are emotionally challenging for all concerned. The typical dispute involves a child’s two parents, each trying to convince the trial judge that she or he is more suited to be the primary custodial parent, or is deserving of more parenting time with the child than the other parent will agree to, or some variant of one or the other. Family law judges in Oregon, when deciding these emotional tug-of-wars, are required by statute to give primary consideration to “the best interests and welfare of the child.” The governing statute provides the court with a checklist of factors to be considered in making that “best interests” determination.
