Grandparents, stepparents, and other family members can have a very important role in a child’s life. In 2000, a U.S. Supreme Court case severely restricted a grandparent legal rights to visitations with a grandchild when a parent objects to the grandparent’s visitation. To address the obvious problems resulting from Supreme Court case, Oregon enacted a statute which recognizes the strong emotional ties which can develop between a child and a non parent.

The child’s emotional ties can be with any person, including but not limited to a related or non related foster parent, stepparent, grandparent, or relative by blood or marriage. The relationship can be a "child-parent relationship" or an "ongoing personal relationship." If the court determines that a "child-parent relationship" exists, then the court can order custody, guardianship, or right of visitation to the non parent when it is in the best interest of the child. If the court determines that an "ongoing personal relationship" exists, then the court can order visitation or contact rights to the non parent when it is in the best interest of the child.

How the legal concepts of "child-parent relationship" or "ongoing personal relationship" are applied to a particular case can vary dramatically with the facts of each case.  A knowledgeable, experienced Grandparent Rights Step-Parent Rights lawyer can help you understand how these legal concepts might be applied to the facts of your case.
