Get the help your family needs to resolve complex issues concerning child custody, support, visitation, the division of assets, and assignment of liabilities.

CUSTODY

We are here to minimize the trauma of a custody conflict while focusing on the well being of your children and your parental rights. Oregon child custody laws are very specific about protecting the best interests of children. We will help you decide what your best legal options are for your children, both during and after your case is resolved.

UNMARRIED PARTNERS

Ending a relationship, whether married or unmarried, is often difficult. Our understanding of what the law provides for unmarried partners will give you the assurances you need moving forward.

POST JUDGMENT ISSUES AND MODIFICATIONS

After your initial Judgment has been signed, there can still be unresolved matters or new matters that arise after the fact. Whether it is an action to modify custody, parenting time, child support or spousal support or a request to enforce an obligation, we can help.

RELATIONSHIP CONTRACTS

Whether you are seeking a prenuptial agreement, postnuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement, our skilled construction of your contract will ensure the agreement you sign will protect your rights and interests.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Every action starts with the filing of a Petition or Motion. The opening pleadings must be served on the other party who then has 30 days to respond.

Once the other party has filed a response, the court will set a hearing date. For modification and enforcement proceedings, the court will usually set a hearing date at the time of filing the opening documents.

Once the documents have been served, discovery is exchanged. If assets and debts are at issue, appraisals may be commissioned. As part of the discovery process, depositions may also be conducted.

If custody and parenting time is an issue, the court may order an evaluation of the family by an expert who will give a recommendation regarding custody and parenting time. An attorney for the child or children may be appointed under certain circumstances.

At any point, the parties can agree to attend mediation or attempt other alternative dispute resolution options. If agreement cannot be reached, any outstanding issues will be decided by a Judge.
