There seems to be an increase in the number of people who file for divorce after age 50 in Oregon and elsewhere.

Because the process of negotiation can be complicated and evoke strong emotions, it is typically beneficial to act alongside the guidance of an experienced family law attorney before proceeding to court.

Want to keep divorce proceedings short? Prepare early

Divorce filings predicted to spike in the New Year

Often thought of as a time for family and reconnecting, it might come as a surprise that the time directly following the holiday season tends to show a drastic increase in divorces.

One's age at the time of marriage could raise chance of divorce

Trends in divorce have changed and evolved over time as society has adapted to new and different societal norms. Although the average age of Americans at the time of marriage seems to have increased over the years, the scientifically backed "ideal" age to marry ends well before many people choose to actually tie the knot.

Depending on the couple, locating and collecting all of the necessary financial documents can be a relatively simple and straightforward process.

Oregon couples who have various investments, portfolios or simply a high number of assets sometimes require a helping hand when it comes time to gather this type of information.
