Intervention by Psychological Parents and Grandparents
ORS 109.119; ORS 419B. 115
Unless a person is allowed to "intervene" or granted rights of "limited participation", they are not parties, are not given formal notice of legal proceedings, and are not entitled to formally address the Court. Both grandparents and psychological parents may seek to intervene in family law proceedings affecting a child. Grandparents and psychological parents may also seek to intervene in Juvenile Court proceedings. A legal grandparent will be permitted to intervene by demonstrating, by clear and convincing evidence, that intervention is in the best interests of the child. Psychological parents who meet the definition set forth in Section III B below are considered parties in Juvenile Court dependency proceedings, and may be entitled to a court-appointed attorney. Other psychological parents who meet the definition in Section III B below may petition the court for rights of limited participation, but will not be eligible for a court-appointed attorney.
In determining the amount of alimony, the Oregon court considers the duration of the marriage, the recipient's education, current skills and previous employment experience, the financial needs and resources available for each party, the tax consequences of paying or receiving alimony, and the financial responsibility for children. The court may consider other factors deemed relevant to make a ruling on support that it considers just and equitable.
