Property Division

Oregon Complex Property Division Lawyers

Divorce is an unpleasant and painful part of life for many people. After years and years of building a successful life together, it is often difficult to divide what was once community property into an equitable division of assets. In Oregon, there are many aspects that must be analyzed to determine where assets should be assigned and how to value one of a kind assets. The process is quite complex. With some property being considered marital property while other assets are considered separate property, it is easy to see why having a complex property division attorney is a must in these situations.

The objective of a complex property division attorney is to minimize tax implications, keep assets intact such as businesses and preserve capital and cash flows.

What is Equitable Distribution?

Oregon, like many other states, is an equitable distribution state. This means that all marital assets must be evaluated, valued and equitably distributed. However, equitable does not necessarily mean equal distribution. The definition behind equitable in the eyes of the Oregon court system means fair. This means that the court system has a great amount of latitude when it comes to determining what is a fair and equitable distribution of the assets, depending on the unique set of circumstances of each case. Meaning that each asset is reviewed and all circumstances are weighed before determining how it is divided. For instance, companies owned and managed by one member of the married couple may be divided in favor of one spouse over the other if there is a vested interest by one party.
