Oregon Law on Domestic Violence

Under Oregon law, a person is entitled to civil remedies regarding domestic violence—it is also punished as a crime. The definition of domestic violence is broad, not only covering physical abuse, but also including economic harm, sexual assault, emotional abuse, among others.

Importantly, domestic violence is not restricted to cases involving married individuals. The remedies and penalties regarding domestic violence are also applicable to violence between relatives, couples who are dating or cohabitating, and other members of a household.

Under Oregon family law, courts are empowered to issue certain rulings or orders to prevent domestic violence, including:

  • Temporary emergency orders prohibiting contact between the parties to prevent immediate harm
  • Protection orders precluding contact between the parties for an extended period
  • Adverse consequences in child custody determinations
  • Adverse consequences in divorce cases

Oregon courts are legally authorized to render court orders prohibiting various forms of contact between the parties in a domestic violence case, such as:

  • Prohibiting the abuser from entering your home
  • Prohibiting the abuser from approaching your place of employment
  • Prohibiting the abuser from your approaching your child’s school or daycare
  • Contacting you by telephone, electronic communications, and mail
