Legal Separation – Oregon Law
In Oregon, a judgment for separation may be rendered when irreconcilable differences between the parties have caused a temporary or unlimited breakdown of the marriage.
One Year Agreement
The parties make and file with the court an agreement suspending for a period not less than one year their obligation to live together as husband and wife, and the court finds such agreement to be just and equitable or if irreconcilable differences exist between the parties and the continuation of their status as married persons preserves or protects legal, financial, social or religious interest. For the most part, the rules that apply to divorce (dissolution) matters, also apply in legal separation matters.
