Handling Contested and Uncontested Divorces in Oregon
At the law office of Barbara M. Palmer, P.C., we handle divorces for clients in and around the Eugene, Oregon, area. Our firm is experienced at helping clients file for divorce and deal with all of the issues that arise in conjunction with a divorce. Contact us today to speak with an attorney at our firm about your divorce or one of the issues listed below.
If you and your spouse wish to work cooperatively together, have made determinations on all of the issues involved with your divorce, and need a lawyer to complete documents and ensure the legality of all issues, we can help. Our firm handles uncontested divorces when spouses, usually without children, want to move through their divorce with no animosity and arguments.
Oregon is an equitable distribution state when it comes to property division. This means that personal property (such as homes and cars) along with assets (such as retirement accounts and pensions) is divided equally and fairly, but not necessarily 50/50. We work to ensure that the proper value is placed on your property and fight for the division that is in your best interests.
Spousal support (alimony) can be a highly contested issue. Though not every situation requires the payment of spousal support, when it is ordered, clients often still object to either the amount or the fact that it was ordered in the first place. A range of factors are considered by the court when determining how much alimony is to be paid from one spouse to the other, including length of the marriage, age of the parties, health of the parties and income-earning potential.
Also, child support is confidently handled by our firm. We strive to see that the proper amount is ordered to ensure that the child can receive everything that he or she needs. Child support is calculated by a statute-set formula, into which several numbers are entered, including the income of the parents and the number of children.
When making a determination for custody, the courts consider a variety of factors. However, the best interests of the children are always at the center of the case. We can help clients deal with how physical and legal custody is determined. We also assist with parenting time (visitation) issues. A schedule for each parent’s contact with the children warrants the creation of a parenting time agreement.
