How to File for Divorce in Lake Oswego

Divorce is contentious by design. You and your spouse will be deciding how to split your responsibilities and properties that you accrued during your marriage, which requires agreement at one point or another. If that agreement doesn’t come easy, then the case can go to court.

By working with our Lake Oswego divorce lawyers, you can do more to avoid litigation if possible. To begin, we can guide you through the entire divorce process. By sidestepping any mistakes in the divorce petition, we will make the rest of the process easier for you and your family.

The typical divorce filing process in Lake Oswego, Oregon will include:

  1. Hiring a divorce attorney: We recommend that you start the process by hiring us to represent you. We will want to discuss what you expect from the divorce, so you don’t feel doubt as your divorce proceeds.
  2. Filing a dissolution of marriage petition: Our attorneys will create the divorce petition or Petition for Dissolution of Marriage based on our conversations. When it is ready, we will file it with the right court.
  3. Responses and temporary orders: Your spouse will have 30 days to respond to your divorce petition. In the meantime, and until your divorce is finalized, the court can issue temporary orders, like deciding who will stay in the family home.
  4. Settling the divorce: The family law court doesn’t like relying on litigation if it can be avoided. First, you will likely have to attempt to reach a Marital Settlement Agreement, which we can help you reach through honest representation.
  5. Litigating: If a settlement agreement can’t be reached to conclude your divorce, then you will have to go to a divorce trial. Allow us to appear before the judge to bring your arguments. We will fight to reach the outcome that upholds your best interests.

When to Hire a Family Law Attorney

Do you need a family lawyer to help with your case? It isn’t always necessary, but it also never helps to have a professional on your side. We would be happy to help you decide if you need an attorney for your family law case or divorce.

You might not need full legal representation if you are:

  • On good terms with your spouse or the opposing party.
  • In agreement on the most important points of your case.
  • Looking for a divorce for a brief marriage and share no children.

You will benefit more from a family lawyer if:

  • You are married to someone with a diagnosed narcissistic personality.
  • You have been a victim of domestic violence.
  • Your spouse has hired a divorce attorney.
