I am wanting to file for a divorce
after 34 years of marriage
. We have no minor children. He is retired, and gets Soc. Sec. and pensions from P.E.R.S. and Local 701 union. I work part time and have no retirement or pension, and can not draw Soc. Sec. for another 7 or 8 years. I am seeking 50% of his retirement. I have not lived in the home since 12-31-2015, but he has resided in the home. There is no other money. Just what he receives monthly. We have agreed that the home will need to be sold, and the mortgage paid off, the divide the remainder equally. I will have to borrow what money I will have to have to retain an attorney and want to find the cheapest & easiest way to get this divorce completed.
JA: Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I'm sorry, it is in Oregon, Coos County.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: I have spoken to 3 different ones and they all tell me the same. The least amount I will need is $4600. for retainer.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think very good right now but I did want to know if I wait any longer to do this, does he have some way of getting me for abandonment
