Powers of court in dissolution, annulment or separation proceedings

When a court is sitting in proceedings for annulment or dissolution of a marriage, or for separation, it shall have full equity powers. [1971 c.280 §1]

Notes of Decisions

Court may temporarily suspend visita­tion whether or not requested by custodial parent. Jones and Jones, 31 Or App 1171, 572 P2d 347 (1977)

Court has power to issue contempt to enforce compliance with prop­erty division, but cannot modify division. Drake and Drake, 36 Or App 53, 583 P2d 1165 (1978)

This sec­tion does not authorize an award of attorney fees in pro­ceed­ings brought pursuant to [former] ORS 18.160 to set aside decree of dissolu­tion. Praegitzer and Praegitzer, 49 Or App 981, 620 P2d 979 (1980)

Grant of "full equity powers" by this sec­tion refers only to equity powers appropriate for fashioning or modifying dissolu­tion decree, so trial court had no jurisdic­tion over trust created prior to dissolu­tion by husband's mother for benefit of parties' child. Melkonian and Melkonian, 55 Or App 586, 639 P2d 662 (1982)

"Full equity powers" of court are limited to prop­erty division and support issues. Koch and Koch, 58 Or App 252, 648 P2d 406 (1982)
