How to decide between sole custody and joint custody

When deciding on whether to fight for sole custody or agree on joint custody, the decision starts with how well you can communicate with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. In Oregon, custody is defined as making major medical decisions, school decisions and some religious decisions. So in most circumstances, the custody determination is not the most important part of the process. But in order to make that decision, you should reach out to an experienced family law attorney who can help you walk through that process.
