The division of marital property in Oregon is the process by which assets and debts are divided in a divorce. When an agreement cannot be reached between both spouses the courts will identify the assets, determine the value of the assets and then make a distribution of the assets based on certain factors. Determining factors or issues that can affect equitable (or fair) division can include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Presence of businesses
  • Presence of savings and retirement accounts
  • Prior establishment of a premarital or post-marital agreement
  • Tax issues
  • Debt
  • Premarital and/or separate assets of a party
