If you have sole legal custody in the state of Oregon if you died would your husband get custody of your minor children or would their legal father get custody?
My husband had this happen to him..... The mother had sole
custody, she died in a car accident. Father picked her up and now
had sole custody of her. We called around to different attourneys
to see if we had to do anything through the courts to get sole
custody, and we were told that due to bio mother dying biodad
instantly got sole custody. Now if he didn't want sole custody then
a near relative could petition the court for sole custody. Hope
that helps some.
