Waiting period in dissolution suit
  • waiver

(1) Except as provided in ORS 107.095 (Provisions court may make after commencement of suit and before judgment) and in subsection (2) of this section, no trial or hearing on the merits in a suit for the dissolution of a marriage shall be had until after the expiration of 90 days from the date of:

(a) The service of the summons and petition upon the respondent; or

(b) The first publication of summons.

(2)(a) Upon written motion, the court may in its discretion grant a judgment dissolving the marriage prior to the expiration of the waiting period. The written motion must be supported by an affidavit setting forth grounds of emergency or necessity and facts that satisfy the court that immediate action is warranted to protect the rights or interest of any party or person who might be affected by a judgment in the proceedings.

(b) An affidavit stating that a stipulated judgment has been signed by the parties is adequate grounds of necessity for immediate action under this subsection.

(c) If the court grants a judgment before the expiration of the waiting period, the court shall find and recite in the judgment the grounds of emergency or necessity and the facts with respect thereto. [1971 c.280 §6; 1979 c.284 §99; 1999 c.569 §1; 2003 c.576 §243]
