SOME THINGS ABOUT DIVORCE LAWSUITS, TIME AND MONEY
Mr. Cann handles divorce lawsuits:
- without children FROM THIS MARRIAGE
- that can be filed in Hillsboro, Oregon City and Portland,
Oregon, or in Vancouver, Washington
- we only represent husband, or wife, not both.
How long the case will take (time estimates are approximate) and how much
it will cost depend on many things, but mainly what county and state the case
will be filed in, and how easy or hard the legal work will be. All payment
is in advance, except, if the case is more difficult because of information
that you did not give us at the first interview, or if we have to do things
that were excluded from the price, then the price may increase. The
fee is earned when we file the lawsuit. Things that typically cost more
and take longer include:
- when you don't know where your spouse is and have to
search or to 'publish' the divorce papers in a newspaper
- when we have to hire some one to serve the papers on
your spouse, especially outside the United States - WE CAN SERVE PAPERS IN
VIETNAM BUT THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL COST
- when we have to make extra court appearances especially
outside downtown Portland
Some things that are excluded from the price:
- anything about children
- anything about spousal support
- anything about property division
- anything that is not in a divorce
We can handle your divorce even if your spouse is outside of Oregon or Washington,
even in Viet Nam or in some other country.
We can do other kinds of cases but you and we must have a separate agreement.
INFORMATION WE NEED Print out this page, answer the questions - legibly, make an
appointment and bring the answers in to the office.
Different information is required by the courts and Vital Statistics Departments
in Oregon and Washington - we ask all for the information for both states.
We can usually handle the case if you don't have all the information - it
depends what is missing.

Nothing contained here should be considered legal advice, and communication to the office from this page should not be made for the immediate purpose of obtaining legal advice or creating an attorney client relationship. An attorney client relationship only comes into existence upon a mutual agreement by both the client and the lawyer, not just one of them, and usually requires a face to face meeting except in the simplest cases. There may be reasons why an attorney client relationship cannot be formed, such as, and without limitation, lack of interest, cost, prior engagement, geographic difficulties, inadequate time available, conflicts of interest, probability of lack of success. The outcome of every case turns on its facts - which may be disputed, and the applicable law - which may be disputed, and which may change. Success is common but is not guaranteed.
