37 Questions Answered

Q. Wedding photography business licensed in Washington and registered in Oregon. Do I need any other licenses in Oregon?
A: It sounds like you are good to go. Good luck. Also - buy some insurance, and talk to a lawyer about your independent contractor and customer contracts. All of this can save you headaches in the future.
Q. Divorcing in Oregon after 10 year marriage. My wife purchased home 5 years before we married. Am I entitled to equity?
A: Short answer: yes. There is a presumption of equal contribution to marital assets. You might look at the equity in the home at the time of the marriage, and set that aside for her. All of the equity growth since that point would be looked at as marital property.
Q. a Statutory Bargain and Sale Agreement includes this sentence: "Members of the XXXX families and their heirs shall be
A: Probably unenforceable due to the Rule Against Perpetuities but it’s very rare for that to come up outside of the estates and trusts arena. Would need to look deeper to know for sure.
