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 Council on Court Procedures is changing internet hosts, but the domain and the content remain (essentially) the same, with invaluable information on the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure. There will be some adjustments, and you may need to fix your links, as the migration progresses, but time heals all wobbles, or maybe that’s wobbles all heels.

Nope. The ORCP is updated biennially so the 2013 edition online at the Legislature’s Court Rules website is the current one.

The next ORCP will be the 2015 edition of the ORS (Oregon Revised Statutes), which will appear online in early 2016 (after the 2015 Oregon Legislative session). Sometimes there are “out of cycle” amendments, but they are rare. (See previous blog post on the subject: Out of Cycle Changes to Court Rules.)

The authority on all of this is the Council on Court Procedures. You can read the current ORCP at their website and also track proposed amendments.
