Q: My 17 year old son was arrested October 14th for a DUI with marijuana. How long do we have to wait for a court date.

1 Answer | Asked in DUI / DWI for Oregon on
Answered on Nov 18, 2017

If there was no date on the citation (or no citation at all) there will like be no court date until the court receives charges from the city or county prosecutor’s office. The court would then create the case in their system and set a first date for your son to appear.

Q: how to charge a tenant , in Oregon, that gives a 20 day notice instead of a 30 day written notice to vacate

1 Answer | Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Oregon on
Answered on Nov 18, 2017

Assuming the tenant is on a month to month tenancy and it is the tenant that gave the notice, you simply charge the tenant through day 30 (i.e. an extra 10 days) as long as they actually restore possession to you on or before then. If they don't restore possession to you until day 32, then you charge them rent through day 32 (12 "extra" days). If they just vacated without giving you any notice, then you would charge them 30 days "extra" rent. Any rent remaining due after they vacate, of...
