Ask A Lawyer

In court without a lawyer? Clackamas County Resolution Services Offers a Family Law Education Program. Get legal info for your divorce or family matter (including help with completing court papers).

What

Resolution Services introduces a voluntary 2-hour education program 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. Ask general questions about your situation, and get information on how to move forward to a better resolution for your whole family.

Why

Targeted toward parties going through divorce (dissolution), legal separation, or a custody matter who are not represented by attorneys, this class aims to help make the family court process more understandable and accessible. 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. Resolution Services does not provide legal representation; this class is not a substitute for more complete representation by an attorney.

Cost

$35 per session. Registration and payment required in advance.
