There is no single answer to the question of how long a divorce takes. In Oregon, a divorce (also called a dissolution) generally takes between six and twelve months from the date your divorce is filed until your divorce is final. As of September, 2019, the filing fee for each party in a divorce is $287 and the cost for the filing party to serve the non-filing party in a contested divorce starts at $40. Oregon is one of many states in the United States that uses a “no-fault” divorce model. This means that the court does not consider the specific reasons you are seeking a divorce. The court’s sole requirement for granting a party a divorce is that the spouses have “irreconcilable differences” and no longer want to remain married.
