Divorce is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a family, and divorce propels adults and children into numerous adjustments and challenges. While spouses divorce each other they obviously do not divorce their children.
Oregon is a “no fault” divorce state which means that courts will not go into why a husband or wife want a divorce; it doesn’t matter according to Oregon law. The only reason needed for a divorce or dissolution of marriage is that a husband and wife can no longer get along, and there is no reasonable possibility of reconciling these problems. Oregon law calls this “irreconcilable differences.” A judgment of divorce will usually address the following issues:
- Child custody, legal custody, joint custody, parenting time or visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support or alimony
- Health insurance for the children
- Division of marital property, including assets and debts
- Prenuptial agreements
