No Fault Divorce - Oregon
Oregon is a no fault divorce state, meaning that the only issue we cite in the Petition for Dissolution (document that starts the divorce process with the court) is "irreconcilable differences". Call during normal business hours (M-F 8:30am to 5:00pm) and speak with a highly rated Oregon Family Law Lawyer immediately.
Court Fees For Oregon Divorce
There are court fees for filing a divorce in Oregon. Each County in Oregon has established their own fee schedule, but generally the fee is in the neighborhood of $320-$400. There is a method to obtain a fee waiver for the court filing fees, however they are not usually granted unless the party requesting the waiver is receiving assistance from the State of Oregon. The judges in their discretion may waive or defer fees for other reasons as well.
Mandatory Parenting Class - Custody / Parenting Time Mediation
For cases with minor children, each county in Oregon also has a mandatory parenting class that a parent must attend whether you are filing a divorce or custody case. The class requirements and fees vary dramatically from county to county and range from a one day course to 4 classes taken over a 4-5 week period. For the most part, the fees to participate in the classes are not waivable. Each county also has a mediation program which parties are required to attend. The purpose of the mediation program is for the parties to attempt to come to a resolution regarding custody and parenting time in a neutral setting. The parties appear with a mediator through the county (without attorneys present) and there is no fee for this service.
