How to begin the process of filing for divorce in Oregon.

So to start the process for a divorce, first you would file a petition and all of the supporting documents that are required by the court. Then you would go to the courthouse, you would pay your filing fee and you would serve the opposing party personally so they have to be served by either the sheriff or they have to be served by a processor.

Then the other side has 30 days to respond and at that time the court would turn on all of your court hearings and then your divorce would actually be started at that point.
