You're going to have to file a response in California. You can argue in the response that Oregon should assert jurisdiction. Your best bet would be to consult with an attorney who practices in both states. You can call the Oregon State Bar for a referral at 503-684-3763. As for a domestic relations attorney or firm licensed in both OR and CA. The call is free and the attorney will charge you no more than $35 for an initial consultation.

You asked this question more than a week ago. Are you re-asking it because you did not like any of the answers? You need an experienced Oregon attorney who also has a license in CA. Call the Oregon State Bar for a referral.

Be sure to designate "best answer." If you live in Oregon, you may call me for more detailed advice, 503-650-9662.... more
