Family Law FAQ
I live in Oregon but my spouse lives in Washington. Can I get a divorce in Portland?
You can get a divorce in Portland if you were married in Oregon and either spouse is a resident of Oregon at the time of filing the divorce case, or if you or your spouse lived in Oregon continuously for at least six months prior to the date your divorce case is filed. You must file for divorce in a county where you or your spouse currently live. However, your attorney does not need to be located in the same county where your divorce is filed.
How does a divorce case begin in Oregon state?
The process begins when a spouse files the petition. Once the petition is filed, you or your representative must serve your spouse with the appropriate papers. If the spouse wishes to contest the divorce petition, they must respond within 30 days from the date they were served.
How long does it take to get a divorce in Portland?
In Oregon state, on average, it may take between six and twelve months from the date your divorce case is filed until your divorce is final. However, the length of time varies depending on the complexity of the case. Cases with children, high assets, or contested divorce cases often take longer. Read our Guide to Divorce in Oregon (Part 1 – The Decision to Divorce - How long does it take to get a divorce?) for information about divorce timeframes.
Will the court consider spousal misconduct in my divorce case?
Oregon is a “no fault divorce” state, meaning the reasons of your divorce do not matter to the court. However, Oregon courts will sometimes consider spousal misconduct when determining the custody and parenting plan for your children, if the misconduct in question could endanger your children in any way.
