About Interstate Custody Disputes
Oregon has adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction And Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). That act adopts a concept called “home state” jurisdiction (power), which a state must ordinarily have to make decisions regarding child custody and parenting time.
The UCCJEA provides a roadmap to resolve conflicts over parenting time and custody when one or both parents have recently moved to Oregon, or if there is an existing, out of state order regarding custody or parenting time, and one or both parents have moved from the state that issued that order.
