Get Straight Answers About Alimony and Spousal Maintenance
Over the previous several years, Oregon family law judges have been changing the way they apply alimony laws. In the case of marriages of short duration, awarding permanent spousal support has nearly disappeared. Temporary support for job training or education may be awarded in the event one spouse can show that she or he was unable to work or gain job skills outside of the home because of living arrangements. Permanent support is generally reserved for a spouse in a marriage of extremely long duration. The requesting spouse must show a direct dependence on the other spouse for his or her financial needs over the course of the marriage.
No two spousal support cases are the same because every divorce brings a unique set of circumstances to court.
