Support Enforcement

ORS 25.542
Preventing transfer of assets to evade compliance with order

If at any time subsequent to service, receipt or refusal of a notice pursuant to ORS 25.511 (Notice and finding of financial responsibility), and prior to the entry of an order, the administrator reasonably believes that the parent is about to transfer, encumber, convey, sell, remove, secrete, waste or otherwise dispose of property which could be made subject to collection action to satisfy the order for past support, the administrator may certify the matter to the circuit court, accompanied by a legal description of the property in question, in order to obtain a temporary restraining order directing that such property not be transferred, encumbered, conveyed, sold, removed, secreted, wasted or otherwise disposed of pending entry of a support order by the circuit court. The administrator shall, in such cases, file in the case record a certified statement of the reasons upon which such belief is founded. If the parent furnishes a good and sufficient bond satisfactory to the court, the temporary restraining order shall be vacated. A certified copy of an order entered under this section may be recorded in the same manner as a notice of lis pendens under ORS 93.740 (Notice of lis pendens). [Formerly 416.450]
Note: See note under 25.501 (Definitions for ORS 25).
