Dividing Your Property Fairly

Different laws exist in each state regarding the way in which property is divided when a couple dissolves their marriage. Washington, for example, is a community property state. Generally, assets and debts the couple acquired during marriage are considered "community property." Upon divorce, the family court divides the property after considering relevant factors such as the nature of the property and the economic circumstances of each spouse. To view Washington's statutes regarding the dissolution of marriage rules and child support, please see Title 26 of the Revised Code of Washington.

Unlike Washington, Oregon is an "equitable distribution" state. This means that the court will determine the assets and debts that are considered marital property and debt and then assign them a monetary value. After these steps, the court will divide the assets and debt between the individuals in a manner the court deems equitable. To view Oregon's statutes regarding dissolution and separation, please see Chapter 107 of the Oregon Revised Statutes.
