Talking OREGON Marriage Q&A

Hello Ladies,

My man and I get married in October. Then I will fly back home and continue residing in Germany (I'm a German citizen).
I want to conclude a marriage contract. A simple one-pager that all property and debts remain with the other. Nothing spectacular. We will still have 5 years apart ahead so regardless of the tremendous love we have for each other, I want to keep it real.

I'm not aware how marriage contracts can be concluded over there in prison. Can I just let my two witnesses sign together with us on the big day, and DOC will do the legal paperwork? Does Oregon require notary public to take part? Has anyone any experiences?

Thanks in advance for your infos.

Each state handles property and debt issues differently. What may be valid in one state may be completely invalid in another state. Since you are traveling to Oregon to marry him, Oregon law would apply. You're going to have to consult an Oregon attorney to see if there is a way to create a valid "what's mine is mine, what's yours is yours" sort of marriage contract.

Talking How complicated is it to get married while fiance is in prison in Oregon?

My fiancé and I are debating whether to get married while he is in prison or if it would be better to wait until he gets out... How complicated is it to get married while he is in prison? What is the process like? Any information would be greatly appreciated

I did some research and saw that you aren't allowed to in Oregon. I was thinking of maybe doing that while my boyfriend is serving his time. I hope my info is wrong

My man and I are in constant communication with the chaplain at Two Rivers. We have an approved date and are getting ready to get the license done next month. I don't know where you got that info from.

Send me a PM and I fill you in. Even though we marry in October, I do know the whole process until then.

Hoping I'm on the right thread: My fiance and I have been approved for getting married in October. I have questions about restitution: I own my own home, can the government or FLU attack my property if I marry my inmate? I know Oregon is NOT a community property state so am I protected from his fines? Once married, will they make me pay for his fees also? I'm questioning even getting married now since his rest. is so much and I wouldn't be able to live with making payments to them.

The Chaplin at the facility might have a list of people that are already approved.
