In Oregon, there are marital property and marital assets. Property acquired during the marriage is considered a marital asset. All other property is considered marital property. This is important because the general presumption is that marital assets are split 50 / 50 whereas marital property may or may not be split at all. Oregon is a fair and equitable state and there are few hard and fast rules. Judges have a lot of leeway and flexibility in making property awards.
Because there is so much room for interpretation, it is vital that you have an experienced lawyer to protect your interests by presenting solid arguments before the judge.
