In Oregon, the court will carefully consider numerous factors regarding spousal support, including:

  • Length of marriage

  • Standard of living during the marriage

  • Age of the parties

  • The health of the parties

  • Role as a parent to the parties’ children during the marriage

  • Contribution to the other parties' education or earning ability

  • Earning capacity of the parties

Spousal support can be for a short period of time (transitional) to allow one party to re-enter the workforce or indefinite (maintenance support) after a long-term marriage. Additionally, consideration will be given to a spouse who has sacrificed a potential career in an effort to maintain the family and household.
