Not necessarily. In Oregon, the law requires that the property division is fair and equitable under all of the circumstances. "Equitable" is not synonymous with "equal." This means that the court, if asked, is not likely to divide each piece of property and debt in half. One party may end up with more debt and more property while the other ends up with less property, less debt, and more support.
