Portland Divorce Lawyer
Financial & Legal Effects of Divorce
Nobody enters into a marriage expecting it will end in divorce. But when it happens, it is painful on so many levels. Those going through a divorce can experience a mix of emotions — anger, sadness, and confusion, among others. These feelings are more acute when a divorcing couple has children. On top of everything, there are financial and legal ramifications to a divorce that need to be assessed.
If you are going through a divorce in the Portland area, please know that you are not alone — approximately half of all marriages end in divorce. The fact of the matter is that no divorce is easy; however, our mission at Levine Law Center is to make the process as pain-free for you as possible.

No-Fault Divorce in Oregon
Oregon is an exclusively no-fault divorce state. This means that proving fault in the other spouse in order to get a divorce is not an option in Oregon’s divorce laws. Instead, a spouse or couple simply needs to claim that there are “irreconcilable differences” and the marriage is broken beyond repair as a result.
It’s important to note though that faults could be used as a factor to decide matters related to divorce such as property division, spousal support, child custody, child support, etc.
Furthermore, before a couple can file for no-fault divorce in Oregon, one or both spouses need to be a resident of the state for at least six months.
