02. Legal Separation
There are occasions when a party may desire a legal separation instead of a divorce. Typically, this may arise out of consideration for religious beliefs or from a legal basis where a party has not lived in Oregon for six months in order to file for a divorce. The process of a legal separation is essentially identical to a dissolution. A judgment of separation leaves the marriage in tact but affords equitable relief to the party that includes child custody, parenting time plan, division of assets and liabilities. A legal separation can be converted to a divorce under the terms of the governing statue. However, there are drawbacks. Bryan Blodgett will help you determine if this should be possibly considered and the potential consequences in deciding to do so.
