The child lives with his mother in Oregon. I live in Washington state. The original parenting plan from 7 years ago was done in Washington because that is where we all lived. I just need to know what forms or what is it called to 1. transfer the case from Washington to Oregon and 2. modify the parenting plan because it needs to be modified based on the distance.
They are in Oregon not Ohio. Is this still the same information?
No problem. So do file these together in Washington or in Oregon courts. I need to know if I use Washington forms or ORegon forms.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I still do not quite understand what forms and where. I have registered our parenting plan in Oregon (incase of enforcement) using the Out of state registration packet. My understanding is that I need to send some kind of forms to Washington asking them to transfer the case to Oregon and then ask for a modification after it is transferred. I just am still not clear as to how to do them together when it is two separate states.
Thank you for your help. Oregon.
I used packet 5C--Out of State child custody and parenting time judgements. My understanding was that this is not the same as asking for a transfer of jurisdiction, rather if I needed to enforce the parenting plan I needed to do this first. Is that not the case?
