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.
The Oregon court grants a no-fault divorce, or one person can allege fault to end the marriage. A couple must either agree to the reason for the divorce, such as the marriage has irretrievably broken down due to irreconcilable differences, or prove to the court that the divorce should be granted because one party was under-age or lacked the mental capacity to understand marriage, or consent was obtained either by force or fraud.
