A Guide to Divorce, Part 1
Preparing to Get a Divorce in Oregon or Washington
The first stage I’ll call the preparation stage. The preparation stage is the grey time between when you were madly in love, up to the point where you decide that a divorce is the way to go. This is the time when you are worried that you are heading towards a divorce and are unsure what that would look like for you, your spouse, and your family. My goal is to help you to know what to think about as you decide whether a divorce is the right thing to do by informing you of the ways to navigate a divorce.

The final stage is the process of actually getting the divorce. This is the stage where you are in the midst of the divorce process. For some people this will involve how to make the best use of your Portland family lawyer. For others it will be a discussion of how to actually proceed with mediation. For the lucky few who worked out their own agreement, it will be a discussion of how to go about getting an uncontested divorce completed.
Regardless of where you are in your divorce process, my hope is to offer guidance and information to better clear the way for whatever path is right for you. Whether you are trying to decide how to best protect yourself for the possibility of divorce, sorting out what type of professional you should hire, or deciding how to stay sane through the actual divorce case itself, hopefully this four-part guide to divorce can help you.
