Third Party Custody and Visitation

We have extensive experience helping families with third party custody and visitation cases. We can help you assess whether you have a viable claim for third party custody or visitation, or if someone else may have a viable third party claim for your child.

Third party cases can be complex and counter-intuitive because the court’s initial consideration is to protect the legal parent’s rights. The laws generally favor the legal parents in contests involved with third parties (non-parents). While grandparents seeking custody rights are a common scenario, Oregon does not restrict third party rights to only grandparents.

We can provide advice and effective advocacy to protect your legal rights in a contested third party custody or visitation proceeding.

Our firm has over 90 years of combined experience in Family Law. Please contact Family Law Attorney Steve Palmer to discuss your case.
