LEGAL RESEARCH
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

This page contains information/links that will help you when researching the laws applicable to your case. Whether you are a parent, advocate, activist, or legal professional, the information you find here will be beneficial. There are many Oregon Statutes (ORS) and Oregon Rules (OAR) which apply in dependency cases. Higher court rulings may be interesting reading as well, either for the case law or as background information on one or more of the principals in your case. For instance, I found that the CPS psychologist who examined me had testified in a large number of Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) hearings that had gone to either the Oregon Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals. Had I known this prior to submitting to the exam, I never would have agreed to the evaluation! Also included on this page will be various rules and manuals of interest. I will be updating this site regularly, so keep checking back!

Below are the links for the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS). For experienced researchers I have a link to the main ORS website and you can navigate though yourself. For those just starting out, I have several other links within that website to areas of interst. Just click on where you want to go!

Below are the links for the Oregon Administrative Rules. For experienced researchers I have a link to the main OAR website and you can navigate though yourself. For those just starting out, I have several other links within that website to areas of interst. Just click on where you want to go!

Below are links to other pages that may be of interest to you when doing legal research. I have included topics that seem to come up frequently in CPS cases.
