Re: Oregon Inheritance Law

The answer depends upon whether the deceased spouse had any children which were not also children of the surviving spouse.

If no other children then the surviving spouse recieves the entire estate.

If there are children of the deceased spouse who are not also children of the surviving spouse then 50% goes to the other children and 50% to the surviving spouse.
