Helping You Find a Secure Financial Future

There is no statutory formula for the calculation of spousal support, making the process complicated and challenging. You need an experienced attorney at your side to determine whether spousal support is appropriate and, if so, how much and for how long. At Yates Family Law, PC, in Portland, we understand that the stress of divorce often comes from an uncertain financial future. We guide you from an uncertain present into a more secure and certain future.

If you are seeking spousal support or disputing the amount of support that your spouse is requesting, contact us at 503-505-6009 or toll free at 888-899-4319.

An Experienced and Knowledgeable Oregon Spousal Support


After a divorce, both parties should maintain a lifestyle not overly disproportionate to the one they enjoyed during the marriage. Spousal support is the vehicle often utilized by the courts to achieve this result.

At Yates Family Law, PC, we answer three questions that are posed in all spousal support cases. Those include:

  • When is spousal support appropriate?
  • What kind of spousal support (transitional, compensatory or maintenance) is needed?
  • How much spousal support is reasonable, both in amount and duration?

Our attorney stay current on the latest developments in the law affecting spousal support, including statutes and case law, as well as local trends. Unlike child support, spousal support formulas do not exist, which can cause serious disputes in a divorce. At Yates Family Law, PC, we go above and beyond getting you through the divorce process including support disputes, and also providing you peace of mind that a secure financial future brings.
