Abuse Advocacy and Restraining Orders
Divorces are fraught with disagreements and dissatisfaction. Rarely, highly complex divorce cases will find satisfactory resolution at the district court level and will go on to seek a different resolution in the Oregon Court of Appeals and potentially the Oregon Supreme Court. The appeals process is a long and draw out process, but it can have not only have a significant impact on the outcome of specific divorce cases, but has the potential to impact how future family law cases are decided.

It is important to understand that in order to appeal a divorce or family law case, an error must have occurred at the district level.
Though there are many aspects of a divorce or family law case that can be appealed, the most common reasons are:
- An error in the determination of property division during the divorce, including valuation or categorization
- An error in the determination of parental fitness and best-interests-of-the-child
- An error in the award or calculation of alimony payments
- An error in the determination of child support, including the grant or denial of payment modifications
