Good morning and thank you for the question.
There are a couple of ways you could go with this.
1.) You could hire a local family law
attorney who can petition the court to order child support and spousal support
in conjunction with the separation
. The court would likely order the two of you to attend mediation
prior to an actual hearing on the merits. Statistically speaking, there is a good chance you and your husband will reach an agreement at this mediation.
2.) You could call Oregon's child support services at(NNN) NNN-NNNN or apply on their website by clicking here
. The website also has some very useful information under the resources tab on the left hand side. The good thing about this service is that it is basically free. There may be some nominal fee (e.g. $25). While they would help you obtain child support, they probably would not be of much assistance for spousal support.
I hope that answers your question! If so, please positively rate my answer. Experts only receive compensation for answers when the customer rates the answer.
