If you have lived with someone intimately for a substantial period of time, you may have rights which can be enforced in a court of law. In a divorce of a married couple, the division of assets and debts is presumed to be equal. In a domestic partnership, the court tries to divide assets and debts based on the intent of the two people involved. Determining intent can be difficult.
In determining the amount of alimony, the Oregon court considers the duration of the marriage, the recipient's education, current skills and previous employment experience, the financial needs and resources available for each party, the tax consequences of paying or receiving alimony, and the financial responsibility for children. The court may consider other factors deemed relevant to make a ruling on support that it considers just and equitable.
