(b) The parent neglected without just and sufficient cause to provide proper care and maintenance for the transferor for the 10-year period immediately preceding the date on which the transferor became an adult.

(2) Property that would pass by transfer on death deed under ORS 93.948 (URPTDA 1. Short title) to 93.979 (Relation to Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act) from the deceased transferor to a parent of the deceased transferor shall pass and be vested as if the parent had predeceased the transferor if the transferor was a minor when the transferor died and:

(a) The parent of the transferor willfully deserted the transferor for the life of the transferor or for the 10-year period immediately preceding the date on which the transferor died; or

(b) The parent neglected without just and sufficient cause to provide proper care and maintenance for the transferor for the life of the transferor or for the 10-year period immediately preceding the date on which the transferor died.

(3) For the purposes of subsections (1) and (2) of this section, the court may disregard incidental visitations, communications and contributions in determining whether a parent willfully deserted the deceased transferor or neglected without just and sufficient cause to provide proper care and maintenance for the transferor.

(4) For the purposes of subsections (1) and (2) of this section, in determining whether the parent willfully deserted the deceased transferor or neglected without just and sufficient cause to provide proper care and maintenance for the deceased transferor, the court may consider whether a custodial parent or other custodian attempted, without good cause, to prevent or to impede contact between the transferor and the parent whose transfer would be forfeited under this section.

(5) The transfer of property, as defined in ORS 93.949 (URPTDA 2. Definitions), to a parent of a deceased transferor may be forfeited under this section only pursuant to an order of the court entered after the filing of a petition under ORS 93.985 (Forfeiture of transfer by parent who deserted or neglected transferor). A petition filed under ORS 113.035 (Petition for appointment of personal representative and probate of will) may not request the forfeiture of a transfer by a transfer on death deed of a parent of a deceased transferor under this section.
