    If you've been paying support, that's good for you, but you should be sure to document the fact that you've been paying it, and what the payments have been for. Never pay child support in cash. If you pay by check, write 'child support' on the check. Note that Oregon law sets precise figures for what child support should be, based upon the income of each party and the amount of time each parent spends with the children. The amount of 'support' you've been paying may well not be accurate. On the other hand, if you're still married and she hasn't filed any documents requesting support, you may not be legally obligated to pay it at all.

    You should not sign any documents without first having them reviewed by an attorney. You should consult with a lawyer in private if you're going through a divorce. You can call the Oregon State Bar for a free referral at 503-684-3763.
