In a direct request for recognition and enforcement of a Convention support order or foreign support agreement:
A security, bond or deposit is not required to guarantee the payment of costs and expenses; and
An obligee or obligor that in the issuing country has benefited from free legal assistance is entitled to benefit, at least to the same extent, from any free legal assistance provided for by the law of this state under the same circumstances.
ORS 110.645 (Definitions) to 110.669 (Language of filed record) do not prevent the application of laws of this state that provide simplified, more expeditious rules regarding a direct request for recognition and enforcement of a foreign support order or foreign support agreement. [2015 c.298 §66]
