Without a prenuptial, asset division can still be accomplished

Although prenuptial agreements are generally hugely beneficial to soon-to-be married couples with substantial assets, some individuals still prefer to forgo the agreement before marriage.

After an Oregon divorce, taxes may be trickier

Most people hope that financial and legal difficulties are in the past when a divorce is finally settled. During this tax season, some Oregon divorcees might be surprised to find that this isn't always so. While the deadline for taxes to be filed is April 15, the IRS does grant extensions to certain individuals. Since filing taxes after a divorce can include decisions that have previously not had to be made, keeping important details in mind, such as alimony and child custody, can ensure a smoother process for those involved.

In these instances, it is best to be prepared.

Financial cheating may make asset division difficult for some

While the reasons behind a divorce can be as unique as each individual person, some divorces may stem from common issues.
