It’s time to update my 2008 post on Researching Oregon Paternity Law
Depending on your specific question (and they do run the gamut!), here are some updated resources and links.
2) The Legal Aid Services of Oregon (LASO) “Oregon Law Help” website (click on Family, and then Paternity)
5) Oregon’s Center for Health Statistics: Establishing Paternity On A Birth Certificate
7) There are additional print and online research resources to consult, including cases and secondary materials. Visit a public law library to find free or low-cost access to those subscription databases.
(Termination of parental rights is a separate, but sometimes related, issue. In the future, we will address how to research that subject.)
