Divorce Lawyer Serving Portland, OR

Family Law & Divorce Law

Under Oregon law, either party may seek a divorce, which ends the marriage. Unlike some states, where one party must have engaged in bad conduct before the court will grant a divorce, 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. 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.

Even though Oregon is a no fault state, a divorce can be a very difficult and emotional process. It is important to have the right team to advise and guide you through this 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, custody, support, and property issues.
