In Oregon, Divorce is legally referred to as “Dissolution of Marriage.” To be eligible for Dissolution of Marriage, at least one spouse must be a resident of Oregon, or have resided in Oregon for at least six months. Oregon is considered to be a “no fault” divorce state. “No Fault” Divorce means that the court will not assign fault to either spouse as the reason for the divorce. Instead of placing fault the court will use the term “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the termination of the marriage. Although direct fault will not be placed on either spouse, fault may be weighed as a factor when dividing mutual property, or awarding spousal support (also referred to as alimony in other states). Dissolution of Marriage can be done without an attorney, but the process is very technical and can be convoluted. Often those who are not assisted by a divorce attorney will end up paying more in spousal support and even losing more of their mutual property. David Johnson is a Salem divorce lawyer who has helped many individuals work through all of the nuances of the legal system. He is ready to help you too.
