In the State of Oregon, in the case of divorce, if one parent does not wish to agree to joint custody of minor children, the case must go to trial. Oregon is one of only eight (my last information) states in the country which DO NOT presume joint custody unless there are mitigating circumstances. This, in most cases, results in fathers being limited to something like an every-other-weekend and half of vacations schedule. If a mother is not drug or alcohol dependent, abusive, or morally unfit, mom gets the kids in most cases. This is unfair to good dads who wish to remain fully involved in the lives of their children, to the benefit of all. The law needs to be changed.
