The divorce case between Kaine and Terry Horman, continually delayed since 2010, will not go forward for at least four more months.
A judge ruled Wednesday to abate the divorce case through Aug. 1.
Kaine Horman filed a motion to delay the case again in January. He cited a desire for the focus to remain on the investigation into his son's disappearance.
Kyron Horman was 7 years old when he was last seen at Skyline School in June 2010.
Both sides of the divorce case have expressed concern about a potential overlap of information with the investigation into his disappearance.
Court documents filed by the Multnomah County Sheriff and district attorney in January said delaying the divorce case would allow investigators to move forward "without interference."
"While we do not have any desire to minimize the importance of this matter, we believe that any potential for a successful criminal investigation of Kyron's disappearance tips the balance in favor of continued abatement in the dissolution," the court documents state.
In court in February, Terri Horman's attorney, Peter Bunch, said his client would assert her Fifth Amendment rights not to incriminate herself during a disposition for the divorce case. However, he also suggested that is not reason enough to further stay the divorce proceedings.
"I haven't seen anything in any of the state's filings, even including the ones under seal, that would indicate anything specific that would lead to the conclusion that by next August the state will have found a suspect in Kyron Horman's disappearance," Bunch said.
Police have never named a suspect in the case.
Kyron's mother, Desiree Young, also filed a $10 million lawsuit against Terri Horman, alleging she was involved in the boy's disappearance.
