Divorce Lawyer Representing Clients from
Salem, Oregon, and Surrounding Areas

Divorce is a challenging time in a person’s life and many questions often arise for those going through a divorce.

For instance, there are financial situations that raise concerns, such as:

Who is responsible for paying past bills?
Who is responsible for paying current bills?
What money can I spend right now?
What can I do if my bank account is empty and I need to pay bills?

Child custody questions also emerge; many clients wonder about the following issues:

Can I move the children to a new location in my current city?
Can I move the children to a new city?
Can I move the children to a new state?

At the law office of Daniel H. Van Eaton, in Salem, Oregon, we are frequently asked these questions by our clients and we can help you answer them too. In addition, we will assist you with questions about spousal support (alimony), division of assets, property division, child support, and child visitation.

Many of our clients never consider that the judge who hears their divorce case can have a significant impact on the outcome of their case. We are very familiar with the judges in Polk County and Marion County and know their individual philosophy’s on divorce. For your divorce matter, you are able to exclude two judges from presiding over your case. As your divorce attorney, we will help you remove a judge who is not compatible with your position.    

To schedule an initial consultation with a divorce lawyer, contact us today. For your convenience, we are easily accessible.  In fact, our clients are free to contact us at any time; day or night. We know that when a person is in the midst of a divorce even minor issues can sometimes become a major struggle and you need to be able to get in touch with your divorce attorney immediately.
