So the question is, are there low-cost resources available to help somebody with their divorce? The answer to that is
yes, there actually are quite a few resources available. The state provides help through the Oregon Judicial Department and you can Google search on Google “family law forms Oregon Judicial department” and that will give you access to divorce forms. You can go to your County website and there’ll be a family law department and within that there’ll be divorce forms. You can check out the Oregon State Bar. There are plenty of pages there on divorce information if you’re just looking for information. If you’re looking for legal help, Saint Andrews Legal Clinic in Portland and Hillsboro Washington County offers low-income support to low-income people for divorce and family law issues.

Many of the county courthouses offer free family law assistance You just need to call the courthouse Family Law Department and they’ll direct you to the right place. So there are resources for low-income people who help who need help with divorce.
