Oregon has "no-fault" divorce, which is a divorce on the ground of irreconcilable differences. This means you and your spouse can't get along and there's no reasonable chance to save the marriage.
You may be able to get a summary dissolution of your marriage, which is a simplified process for your case. There are limits on who can use this method. Some conditions include you meet the residency requirements, you've been married less than ten years, and you don't have minor children or older children in school.
Your finances are simple, too; your assets and debts are limited and spousal support isn't an issue.If you and your spouse agree on divorce terms, your divorce is uncontested and it can be finalized in about three months. If you disagree on issues, your divorce is contested, and it will take longer to finalize. The court will likely set up hearings and a trial to resolve your disputes.
I hope you may be able to resolve it all and to move on with your life.A lawyer here can help you cope, divorce can overwhelm sometimes.
