My deceased unmarried adult child and no will has two minor children his mother and I were never married and are disputing over the burial and funeral. My son lived with me (father) for m
25yrs, all of but three years of his life. She refuses to comprimise, hung up on me, now refuses to speak to me. What happens when an agreement cannot be made.
Under ORS 97.130(2), the disposition of the decedent’s remains may be determined by "(3) Either parent of the decedent". If one parent opposes the other, they must do so in writing.
However, "If disposition of the remains of a decedent has not been directed and authorized . . . within 10 days after the date of the death of the decedent, a public health officer may direct and authorize disposition of the remains." ORS 97.130(8).
The last option is having a judge decide.
