Family Law Education Class

In court without a lawyer? Clackamas County Resolution Services offers a family law education class. Ask general questions about your situation and get information on how to move forward to a better resolution for your whole family (including help with completing court papers).


Resolution Services is offering a voluntary 2-hour legal education class under ORS 3.425(3). Get basic information about Oregon family law and legal procedures; learn about the options for resolving your disputes through litigation, mediation, and other dispute resolution alternatives, the role of attorneys in mediation, and court procedures and time requirements. Learn basic information about shared parenting plans, division of property, and spousal and child support.


This class helps make the family court process more understandable and accessible for parties going through divorce (dissolution), legal separation, or a custody matter who are not represented by attorneys. With more information, families can make better, more informed decisions about how they want to handle their dissolution or other family law matter, especially as it impacts their children. Please note that Resolution Services cannot provide legal advice, nor provide legal representation, and this class is not a substitute for more complete representation by an attorney.
