The first source I have chosen is Anna Sortun, REBUTTING THE PARENTAL PRESUMPTION IN OREGON: SUBSTANTIATING EMOTIONAL BONDS AFTER TROXEL V. GRANVILLE, 82 Or. L. Rev. 1191 (2003).
This article discusses what is best for a child and how each situation can be is uniquely delicate. It also talks about the continuity, attachment, and emotional impact of removing a child from the care of long-term caregivers, such as grandparents.
The second source I chose is Philip F. Schuster II, CONSTITUTIONAL AND FAMILY LAW IMPLICATIONS OF THE SLEEPER AND TROXEL CASES: A DENOUEMENT FOR OREGON'S …show more content…
V.I. Code Ann. tit. 16 § 606 (2002)
2. Miss. Code Ann. § 93-16-3 (2010)
Whenever the court awards custody of a minor child to one of the parents of the child or terminating the parental rights of one of the parents of a minor child, or whenever one of the parents of a minor child dies, either parent of the child's parents may petition the court in which the decree or order was rendered or, in the case of the death of a parent, petition the chancery court in the county in which the child resides, and seek visitation rights with the child.
1. This first agency I chose is HG.org, it was one of the very first online law and government information sites. HG. org was founded in January of 1995 by Lex Mundi, a large network of independent law firms. The objective of HG.org is to make law, government and related professional information easily and freely accessible to the legal profession, businesses and consumers.
Website link: http://www.hg.org/ I personally think that the information on the website is very helpful to my research on the case. The site contains a lot of information regarding child visitation rights as well as the rights of grandparents. It even narrows down the search to each particular state and their rules.
2. The second agency I chose was Oregon Legal Research. The Oregon Legal Research website is run by Oregon public law librarians from Washington and Clackamas counties and
