Under Oregon law, either party may seek a divorce, which ends the marriage. Neither party has to be at fault in any way. That is because Oregon is a “no fault” state. The court can grant a divorce if either party claims that “irreconcilable differences” exist, which caused the marriage to break down. Every case is different. Depending on your particular circumstances, a divorce may include the resolution of these issues: custody, parenting time (visitation), child support, spousal support (alimony), and the division of all property (property division) of any kind in with either party has an interest.
Make no mistake, a divorce can be a very difficult process. Peter has helped many clients throughout the Portland metropolitan area, in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, and Columbia Counties, as well as clients from Bend, Prineville, and Astoria, in successfully dealing with the emotional and financial stress of divorce.
