Is Oregon a No-Fault Divorce State?

The law does not dictate why you are ending your relationship. Whether you are married or in a domestic partnership, it is a personal choice to dissolve your relationship — and we respect the decision. Oregon is a no-fault dissolution state, which means neither person is legally responsible for the breakdown of the relationship or their choice to journey in separate directions.

The details of your divorce or domestic partnership dissolution are deeply personal. So are the legal solutions that will allow you to move forward. We can help.

Are There Residency Requirements to File for Divorce in Oregon?

You meet Oregon’s residency requirements if you were married in the state, and either you or your spouse is a resident of Oregon at the time you file for divorce.

If you were not married in Oregon, at least one spouse must reside in the state for six continuous months before filing for divorce and must file for divorce in the county where one of you lives.

How Do I Know Which Family Law Solutions are Right for Me?

Determining which legal services will help you reach your goals will be dictated by your unique circumstances. Getting it right the first time requires forming a partnership with your family law attorney, so each of your current and future concerns is personally, legally, and accurately addressed.

That means something different for everyone.

While some marriage and partnership dissolutions are straightforward, others require a creative strategy to reach the best outcome.

The more we know about your family dynamics, and future goals, the better equipped we are to serve your needs.

How Long Does It Take to Reach a Final Marriage or Partnership Dissolution in Oregon?

Whether couples end their marriages or relationships for an abrupt reason, like adultery or deception, or because they have grown apart, there is no legal timeframe — or waiting period — to bring the relationship to a close.

The details of your dissolution will dictate the time it takes to finalize your divorce. We can help you understand the best legal approach to producing real solutions that will allow you to move forward efficiently and effectively.

Legal Standards are Important to Your Divorce, Child Support & Child Custody Outcome  

Whether you have been married for decades and have soon-to-be adult children or have been married for two years and have no children, there are legal standards that will help outline the direction your family law case takes to completion.

This is important to us because we know this is an emotional time for our clients. When our clients’ personal feelings dictate their responses, their ability to make informed decisions may be temporarily compromised.

That is why we are here. If your soon-to-be-ex-spouse is making empty threats about your future, we will tell you so. When your emotions take over, and you are unsure of the best response, we will help you understand how the law applies to your case, so you know the difference between the legal standards that apply and the uncertain claims you have heard from others.

Do I Have to Attend Mediation Before Getting Divorced in Oregon?

Family law mediation can help couples reach decisions about their dissolution, property distribution, child custody, and finances to help reduce the number of details that may need to be finalized at trial — or remove the necessity for trial altogether.

The Oregon family courts encourage mediation when couples cannot agree on the important aspects of their dissolutions and mandate the process for contested custody and parenting time cases unless waived by a judge.

Mediation can give both parents and non-parents more control over their cases and the outcomes, even when it is not mandated by the courts. We can help you determine the best way to move forward with your family law case, so you can pursue the best outcome with less financial and emotional stress and anxiety, so you can begin your next personal journey with confidence.
