Divorce | Dissolution

Experienced and Knowledgeable Divorce Representation

The legal aspects of a divorce or dissolution of a cohabitation situation with or without an agreement or registered domestic partnership can be difficult to address while also dealing with the emotional aspects of your split. Having the guidance of an experienced lawyer who understands what you are going through can be helpful in smoothing your transition into being single again.

For nearly 30 years, I, Helen C. Dillon, Attorney at Law, have worked to provide compassionate and understanding divorce and dissolution representation to clients in the Portland Metropolitan area. My experience as both an attorney and as a divorced mother of four children, has given me unique insight into the issues you are facing, both legal and emotional. Understanding your needs, I work to shoulder your legal burden to allow you to focus on planning for your future and taking care of yourself and your children during the process. Contact my office online or call (503) 548-2532 or toll free (877) 213-7749 to set up an appointment to discuss specific divorce or dissolution concerns.

Comprehensive and Caring Divorce Representation

My years of legal experience have taught me proven strategies and techniques for dealing with even the most complicated or contested issues relating to the end of a relationship. I am confident in addressing the various aspects involved in divorce and dissolution, including:

  • Tax exemption issues
  • Parental rights
  • Non-custodial parents
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Cohabitation (living together) agreements
  • Registration of domestic partnership

My work in the complex areas of dissolution of marriage, cohabitation arrangements, and registered domestic partnerships allows me to address the specific tax and other benefits implications of your split, providing informative and understandable advice designed to help you make the best decisions possible for your unique situation.

The law regarding property division has changed a great deal, as has the economy, and you need a lawyer who is knowledgeable about the law and creative in its application to your situation. This includes, for example, the family home, retirement benefits (pensions, 401(k) plans), investments, businesses, other real property, stock options, household goods, collections, and debts. Those interests need to be resolved, protected, and, sometimes, enforced. Consideration of health issues and life insurance must also be addressed.

Don't let yourself be overwhelmed by the legal implications of a divorce or dissolution, contact my office to make an appointment to discuss your specific needs.
