A: In Oregon, there is a legal presumption that the value of any asset, except inheritances or gifts, acquired during the marriage will be shared equally at the time of divorce. Typically in Oregon the court uses the value of assets at the time of divorce, not separation. There are some exceptions. The overall goal in dividing property is to make a just and proper division of assets.
There are three types of spousal support: transitional, maintenance and compensatory support. More information is needed to determine whether you are entitled to support. For spousal maintenance, the court considers the following factors :
(I) The duration of the marriage;
(ii) The age of the parties;
(iii) The health of the parties, including their physical, mental and emotional condition;
(iv) The standard of living established during the marriage;
(vi) A party's training and employment skills;
(vii) A party's work experience;
(viii) The financial needs and resources of each party;
(ix) The tax consequences to each party;
(x) A party's custodial and child support responsibilities;
(xi) Any other factors the court deems just and equitable.
