Attorney fees in certain domestic relations proceedings

In any proceeding brought under ORS 107.095 (Provisions court may make after commencement of suit and before judgment), 108.110 (Petition for support of spouse and children) and 108.120 (Support judgment or order), and in any contempt proceeding in any suit for marital annulment, dissolution or separation, the court may render a judgment awarding to a party, or directly to the partys attorney, a sum of money determined to be reasonable as an attorney fee at trial and on appeal therein. When a district attorney initiates or prosecutes a proceeding pursuant to ORS 33.015 (Definitions for ORS 33.015 to 33.155) to 33.155 (Applicability) for enforcement of a restraining order issued under ORS 107.716 (Hearing), 107.718 (Restraining order), 124.015 (Hearing upon request of respondent) or 124.020 (Ex parte hearing) or for enforcement of a support order, the court may enter a judgment for a reasonable attorney fee to be paid by the respondent to the county in which the district attorney holds office. A judgment so entered is enforceable by the party or attorney in whose favor the judgment is given against property of the other party or against any property held jointly or in common between the parties.
