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.)

I last blogged about the Sheriff’s Civil Process Manual (and writs of assistance) back in 2010, but before we got the 2010 update to the Manual.
The Washington County Law Library does now have the 2010 edition of the Manual.  It’s not online and the CD-ROM costs a cool $350 (yikes!), so not a lot of libraries will have it.  I’m not sure it is worth $350, but it sure does help lawyers, judges, and litigants answer a lot of their service and writ questions – maybe that makes it priceless.
(You can also see my updated “Oregon Legal Research Resources -Not Online” list at our website.  The link is at the bottom of the Oregon Legal Resources webpage.)
