Grounds for Divorce in Oregon
Each state has unique grounds in which a dissolution of marriage may be granted by the court. When choosing the grounds for your dissolution of marriage, you should always remember that you must have sufficient proof to the court that your marital situation warrants a dissolution of marriage by the grounds you are requesting.
Grounds for Filing: The Petition for Dissolution of Marriage must declare the appropriate Oregon grounds upon which the dissolution of marriage is being sought. The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree upon and can substantiate, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court. The dissolution of marriage grounds are as follows:
No-Fault:(1) Irreconcilable differences between the parties have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage.
Fault:(1) When either party to the marriage was incapable of making such contract or consenting thereto for want of legal age or sufficient understanding;
(2) When the consent of either party was obtained by force or fraud;
(Oregon Statutes - Volume 2 - Sections: 107.025, 107.036, 107.015)
