Is My Business Considered Marital Property in Oregon?

Property division is one of the most difficult aspects of divorce. For many self-employed individuals, their business may be viewed as marital property.

Oregon is an equitable distribution state, meaning all marital assets are subject to division in an equal and fair manner. Since a business can be marital property, it must be properly valued prior to being divided. The court will account business income, assets, and the current market to determine a business’s true value. Business owners often need to hire valuation experts.

The following are the possibilities of property division for business owners:

  • The business owner retains his/her company, but the other spouse is awarded more assets
  • The spouse of the business owner might be entitled to certain compensation since he/she contributed to the business or the business was established during the marriage
  • The spouse of the business owner may want to a share in the business
