Oregon Divorce Laws | Property Settlement


Oregon is an “equitable distribution” state. All of the spouses’ property is subject to division by the court, including any gifts, inheritances, and property acquired prior to the marriage. Regardless of whether the property is held jointly or individually, there is a presumption that the spouses contributed equally to the acquisition of any property, unless shown otherwise. When dividing or distributing the tangible as well as personal property of both the spouses or either of them individually; the courts, when ruling on an amount and duration of the contribution that one spouse is will make in support of the other the court shall not consider the possible fault, if any, between either of the spouses that have been stated as the grounds for the filing of divorce, dissolution or separation. The Oregon divorce courts will consider the contribution of either spouse as a homemaker as a tangible contribution towards the acquisition of marital assets.
