How Is Property Divided in Oregon?

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.

What Counts as 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.

Who Gets the House in a Divorce in Oregon?

If the home is considered marital property and not one spouse’s separate property, the Oregon court may consider the following factors when determining who gets the house:

  • the financial circumstances of each spouse;
  • each spouse’s contributions to the property;
  • the age and physical/mental health of both spouses;
  • who has custody of minor children;
  • each spouse’s employability; and
  • the home’s value.
