Oregon Property Distribution

An Oregon divorce court will divide all property, and the Court will presume that the spouses contributed equally to the acquisition of any property. The Oregon divorce Court will divide all property based upon the following factors:
  • the cost of any sale of assets; 

  • the amount of taxes and liens on the property; 

  • the contribution of each spouse to the acquisition of the marital property, including the contribution of each spouse as homemaker; 

  • any retirement benefits, including social security, civil service, military and railroad retirement benefits; 

  • any life insurance coverage; and 

  • whether the property award is instead of or in addition to spousal support.
