File for Divorce Online in Oregon Without a Lawyer


If divorcing spouses decide not to hire a lawyer, they can use our online platform to facilitate and organize pre-divorce preparations. Oregon Online Divorce helps couples save money and avoid common mistakes when completing legal forms.

However, when filing documents without a lawyer, spouses need to satisfy the following steps independently.

File a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.

Whether you have a contested or uncontested divorce, you must first apply a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. This form informs the court of your intentions to obtain a divorce in Oregon and includes the following information:

  • Date of marriage;
  • Place of marriage;
  • Place of residence;
  • Grounds for divorce;
  • Identification of children; and
  • Information about child custody, alimony, and family property.

The petitioner should file a Petition in the county where one of the spouses currently lives. It will be helpful if the spouses submit the original and two copies of the forms to the county clerk at the same time.

Pay court fees.

At the time of filing, the petitioner must pay filing fees. After that, the clerk stamps and puts the documents’ date and assigns a divorce case number.

When all the steps are done, the divorce proceedings begin officially.

Do-It-Yourself Divorce in Oregon


Oregon courts do not recommend do-it-yourself divorces for couples with a disputed case. However, spouses who have resolved marriage and divorce-related disagreements may file a divorce without a lawyer.

Partners can take advantage of supportive tools such as specialized couples mediation or online divorce to avoid the risks and overpayments of a DIY divorce.

With Oregon Online Divorce, divorcing couples can entirely focus on the divorce process without worrying about what forms they need and how to fill them out correctly.

A DIY divorce consists of the same steps as a divorce with an attorney:

1. Fill out the required divorce forms.

Depending on the circumstances of a particular case, the list of forms may change. However, the original divorce papers in Oregon include:

  • Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with children / Petition for Dissolution of Marriage without children;
  • Summons;
  • Confidential Information Form (CIF);
  • Notice of CIF Filing.

2. Submit documents to the court.

The petitioner needs to file the completed paperwork with the court clerk in the county where one of the spouses resides and pay filing fees to initiate divorce proceedings.

3. Serve the second spouse.

After filing the initial documents with the court, the petitioner needs to notify about their intentions and submit the divorce papers to the respondent. The petitioner can do it in several ways:

  • by hiring a sheriff;
  • by hiring a private process server;
  • asking for an Oregon resident over 18 years of age and uninvolved;
  • asking the respondent to sign the Acceptance of Service form in advance.

If the petitioner does not know the respondent’s whereabouts, they should notify the court clerk immediately to get further instructions.

4. Wait 30 days from a service day.

When the petitioner serves the spouse, they need to wait 30 days. If the respondent does not file a Response within this period, the petitioner can request a default judgment from the court.

5. Getting a divorce decree.

When the court receives the required documents, the judge schedule a hearing. In an uncontested no-fault divorce, the court may decide after the 30-day service period.

We provide you with:
  • All Required Oregon State Forms.
  • Oregon-Specific Court Filing Instructions.
  • Unlimited Revisions for as long as your account is active.

Getting a Divorce With Children in Oregon


There are two types of child custody in Oregon:

  • Legal custody means that the custodial parent has the authority and legal responsibility to make decisions for the child, especially regarding education, religion, and health care.
  • Physical custody determines where the child will live.

The court may also appoint sole and joint custody depending on the rights and responsibilities. In this context, one or both parents are responsible for the child’s well-being.

Spouses with minor children can resolve the issue of custody and payments themselves out of court. Otherwise, the court will decide based on the child’s best interests and Oregon law.

To determine the type of custody in a particular case, the judge considers the following factors:

  • child’s desires;
  • the child’s emotional ties to each parent and other family members;
  • the interest of the parties in and attitude towards the child;
  • the abuse of one parent by the other;
  • the desirability of continuing an existing relationship;
  • which parent has been the primary caregiver;
  • child’s attachment to school, home, society;
  • the parents’ criminal records, if any;
  • the willingness and ability of each parent to promote and encourage a close relationship between the other parent and the child;
  • the child’s age, sex, and health; and
  • the parents’ emotional stability.

Oregon courts do not give preference to only mothers or fathers based on their gender. Each parent can become a custodian if they can meet the welfare and needs of the child.

Residency Requirements in OR

Each US state has its specific divorce residence requirements. Oregon is no exception.

If the spouses were not married in Oregon, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the state for at least six months before filing.

If the spouses were married in Oregon and are residents of the state, they meet the residency requirement.

If the spouses do not meet Oregon residence requirements, they should file for divorce in another state where they have completed all the conditions. Or partners can wait until the six-month period in Oregon is met and then file for divorce.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in Oregon

The divorce length depends on many factors, such as the number of disagreements between the spouses, the divorce type, the court workload, the mandatory waiting period, and other case features.

Although there is no longer a mandatory 90-day waiting period in Oregon, spouses can not obtain a divorce immediately after filing because they still need to meet the requirement to serve the respondent.

The respondent has 30 days from the service date and receipt of the divorce papers to respond. If the respondent has not answered the Petition, the petitioner may ask the court for an Order of Default and receive a final court judgment.

An uncontested divorce in Oregon lasts about three months on average. However, the petitioner may receive a final decision more quickly if the judge decides that the petitioner has every reason for this.

A contested divorce in Oregon lasts from four months to a year. Its length depends directly on the number of contentious issues that need to be resolved by the judge and the desire of the spouses to cooperate.

The most complex irreconcilable cases involving many properties, debts, and minor children can last up to 3-5 years.
