What Is Equitable Distribution?

In Oregon, marital property is subject to equitable distribution in a divorce. This means that eligible property will be divided fairly, and this is not necessarily a 50/50 split. Numerous factors must be considered, such as who will keep the family home, who has acquired more debt, who has made non-economic contributions to the marriage, and who has a higher income or earning capacity.

The property division process typically involves the following steps:

  • Gathering and inventorying all applicable property;
  • Determining what is marital property and what is separate property; and
  • The equitable division and distribution of marital property.

Generally speaking, marital property includes all assets acquired during a marriage, such as personal property, motor vehicles, bank accounts, investment accounts, and real estate. Separate property includes assets or items brought into a marriage by each party, and may also apply to gifts and inheritances, even if they were received during a marriage.
