    Answered . It's a bit difficult to understand just what has happened, from your question here. But I can tell you this:

    When a divorce case is filed in Oregon, a 'statutory restraining order' automatically goes into effect. This is not a restraining order that prohibits people from talking to or being near each other. Rather, this order prohibits either spouse from hiding or disposing of marital assets, including real estate, vehicles, bank accounts, or other property. The law is intended to prevent one party to a divorce from hiding or keeping assets from the other. If you're going through a divorce, you should consult with an attorney. They can help you ensure that assets are divided equitably. You can call the Oregon State Bar for a free referral at 503-684-3763.
