Be sure to pay attention to the wording in prenuptial agreements

Although once mostly reserved for wealthy couples with a vast amount of assets to protect, many people in Oregon now understand the value of a well-written prenuptial agreement for most couples. Prenuptial agreements typically don't signal a lack of trust as many once believed, and instead can help lay the groundwork for a successful divorce should the issue arise. However, simply writing up a list of agreements and scribbling down a signature may not be adequate.

Post-divorce modifications may be necessary

While a divorce settlement addresses the issues that Oregon couples are dealing with at that point in time, it might be unlikely that life will continue to stay the same years down the road. Certain aspects of a divorce settlement that may have once been relevant may become unreasonable or impossible to meet. When that happens, modifications may be necessary.

Oregon children can benefit from paternity being established

The role that a parent plays in the life of his or her child, whether for the best or worst, may be undeniable. However, various factors can make it difficult for a parent to assume the role that he or she is meant to play.

Couples in Oregon may deal with divorce, child custody more often

A recent report ranked the top 10 states for the highest divorce rate, and our state made the top half of the list. As a consequence, Oregon may have a significant number of divorcing couples who are now dealing with sensitive issues. No matter where in America a couple divorces, factors such as property division and/or child custody agreements may still need to be addressed.
