You can find Multnomah County Family Law Forms at their Circuit Court website. These include Sex Change forms for an adult, Sex and Name Change forms for an adult, and Sex Change forms for minor children.

Residents of other Oregon counties should check with their own County Circuit Courts. There is a Court Finder locator at the Oregon Judicial Department (OJD) website.

There is a new Multnomah County Circuit Court, Family Court FAQ guide on “How to Serve (Deliver) Legal Papers in Oregon.” (We thank Judge McKnight and her family law team* for this guide! They say “[i]t was developed for family law cases but we included Plaintiff/Defendant terms so that usage could be general.“)

Link from Multnomah County Circuit Court, Family Court website, if that direct PDF link is not working. Today the FAQ number is 23, but that could change as new tips and answers to questions are added.

You will need to refer to the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure, which are referenced in this guide. You can find the ORCP at the OJD Court Rules website or link directly to them at the Legislature’s ORCP website. (For the most recent proposed and adopted ORCP rules, visit the Council on Court Procedures website.)

The Media Release, “Oregon Courts Make It Easier to Complete Documents in Domestic Violence Restraining Order Cases,” can be found from OJD Media Releases, What’s New (for 1/15/15).

If you have trouble reaching the actual online FAPA service from the URL in the Media Release, it’s not you (there’s a rogue www in the URL), so go to the OJD Restraining Orders – Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA) webpage and look for the “Use Online Question-and-Answer Interview based eForms” link.

It doesn’t say so clearly, but you will likely need to create an account so be prepared to create a user-name and password. This feature enables you to return to your form later to complete or correct it.

We at the Washington County Law Library are pleased to announce the premiere of our newly redesigned website.  We’ve reorganized our content and added some new navigation menus.  A new navigation tab has been added for CLE information, and we organized our legal research resources into subject-area subsites (general resources, Oregon resources, subject guides, etc.).  We’ve also added direct links from our home page to the library catalog and the subject guides page.  One of the most exciting additions to the website (at least to us) is the document index, where we have compiled all of the documents available on the website.  Another exciting new subsite is the Divorce/Family Law page, accessible through both our website and the county’s homepage (from the Key Services & Information menu).  We invite you to explore the redesigned site and discover all our library has to offer.

I posted many years ago on this subject, more a note for myself than for readers, but I have had reason lately to update that post for all of us, with these new resources:

1) The 2009 Family Law OSB CLE also has a couple of chapters on the subject.

2) Bankruptcy and Domestic Relations Manual, by Hon. William Houston Brown, 2008-09 edition, Thomson-West Bankruptcy Series

It’s tough to find reliable information on this topic, and public librarians are asked these teen parenting questions more than law librarians generally are. But I was looking for something else the other day and ran across these resources from the OHSU teen health webpages:

1) Teen Parents dot org

2) Multnomah County Health Department Connections Program for Young Parents
