After divorce, what spousal support is available to me?

Spousal support, also known as alimony, is not always necessary for every divorced couple in Oregon. However, for those who believe that they are eligible to receive some type of spousal support, it can be important to go into a divorce prepared. There are actually three different types of spousal support that you may qualify for. 

What are the various types of child custody?

When discussing child custody during a divorce in Oregon, it is important to note that there is not simply one type of custody arrangement that all parents must adhere to. Aside from sole and joint custody, there may also be various arrangements, such as sole physical custody for one parent with joint legal custody between both parents. Before determining what child custody arrangement would be in the best interests of the child, divorcing couples would be well-advised to learn the various types of custody.
