Divorce is the legal process of dissolving a marriage between two people. But because a divorce can encompass so many of the practice areas involved in family law-including asset and debt division, custody, parenting time and child support
, it is imperative that a divorce be handled professionally. If not dealt with initially in the proper way, minor issues can become major problems down the road.
Oregon is a "no-fault" divorce state. Two parties can seek a divorce when "irreconcilable differences have caused the irremediable breakdown of a marriage," and without a showing of fault. There are residence requirements that must be met and other factors that may affect how documents are prepared and presented to the court.
