Oregon Father and Mother have Children together. Father and Mother split up.
Father and Mother apparently are unable to agree on timesharing arrangements.
Father’s notion of how to deal with that situation is, allegedly, to … break into Mother’s home.
Perhaps this was not the first poor solution that Father had attempted.
Because Mother was ready for him … with a gun.
Which Mother reportedly discharged in Father’s general direction.
Father promptly took off – after allegedly breaking several of Mother’s car’s windows – only to be arrested when he surrendered himself to law enforcement authorities a few days later.
Father now faces several criminal charges and is confined pending payment of a $50,000 bond.
Hopefully it goes without saying that Father’s conduct will not help him in family court anymore than it will find favor in criminal court.
Why Father didn’t simply file for timesharing in family court in the first place is a mystery. He would almost certainly have saved himself a great deal of money and heartache … and likely been granted substantial timesharing.
