Comprehensive Family Law Services in Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington

At the Law Offices of Paul F. Sherman, we pursue effective agreements for families experiencing the transition of a divorce as well as families that have gone through that transition and need to make changes to the divorce decree. Mr. Sherman approaches each client's needs individually, understanding that the concerns and goals of each client will be different. Our firm provides legal services to clients with issues such as:

  • Divorce and legal separation — We handle all matters relating to the divorce or legal separation of a couple, including property division, child custody and parenting time arrangements, child support, and spousal support.
  • Modifications — Known as post-decree modifications, these changes to the original decree become necessary when there is a material change in circumstances. A material change can include a new job, going back to school or a change in the children's needs.
  • Enforcements — When one party is not following through with the divorce decree, we can help. Clients rely on our firm for enforcement of judgments and orders, including spousal support, child support, and following through with agreements regarding property division or the sale of a family residence.
  • Relocation — Relocation often requires a change of custody, modification of an existing order or a new parenting plan.
  • Paternity — These issues can include establishing or denying paternity for the purpose of determining child support, parental rights, child custody and visitation agreements.
  • Protective Orders — Helping clients with temporary emergency custody orders and dealing with domestic violence. If you are being abused or if you face a false allegation of ciolence, we can help. Our firm will help you obtain an order of protection or defend you against one if you have been wrongfully accused of family abuse.
