If a partner lives with you for 6+ months are they entitled to half your possessions?
What are the laws on this? Are there any web pages on this?
In UK our dumb government is considering similar.
How do you prove a start date? Suppose its a triangular affair?
Meybe she should be entitled to zilch (nothing) to encourage her to demand commitment. ~ if she's worth it, she'll get it.
Not if you're not married.
Depends on the circumstances, that only applies in legal cases such as a marriage, divorce case or If you worked out some sort of legal agreement with this partner. Otherwise no.
Where are you?
This will make a huge difference :)
Only if you have shared the cost
depends what country u live in, it is like that in some countries
No.. its not a divorce case.
No, that's riduclous. If you live with someone for 7+ years, common law marriage comes into play and that's another story.
The answer is absolutely not.
The answer is absolutely not! The things you have bought belong to you and the things your partner has bought are your partner´s. If you have bought some things together then negotiate about that. Thank God you are not married then there are laws about that, but no use going into that now. Good luck with your future life.
Nope! In most states you have to be married, and even then usually the items that you came into the relationship with you leave with. You only have to split what was accumulated during the relationship. Some states still have the common law marriage though, but that is after 7 years.
you have to be married
Depends If You Let them I'm Guessing They Are Unless If The Person Is Comfortable With it Then That's The way It Is.
(But Usually It Depends If Your Married And Depends Where You Live)
only if your married
depends on many factors: which city, state, country you live in: age (if you are a minor); what type of property; etc... In NYS, there is no such thing as 'common law' marriage, so no, they would be entitled only to what is rightfully theirs (they bought, or received as a gift). Some cities and states will have different laws, so contact an attorney in your area.
No! What is yours is yours what is the ex-partners is the ex-partners
Kick him/her out. They're cheasing you.
not 6 months...but around 18 months..and if it is the partners sole residence...you need to be on guard...yes, they are entitled to something if they leave...take great care & protect yourself..
my daughter had this problem with her live-in boyfriend.and she had to give items of value to get shot of her low life fella! the law seems to be on the side of the loser...sadly!
You will find all your answers here from the citizens advice bureau online.
If you are ending a relationship or looking to sign a 'pre-nup' or 'declaration of trust' then see a solicitor.
There is no such thing in English law as a 'Common Law Partner'. I had an Ex Girlfriend live with me for about a year and when she left she tried to take everything she could but I got a decent solicitor who wrote to her and told her to get the stuff she contributed to the house and leave.
See about getting a free 1/2 hour session with a solicitor or go to the CAB and talk to them.
IF EVERYTHING IS IN YOUR NAME NO UNLESS YOU GET MARRIED
No they are not. You have to be legally married.
no you are not, only when over 3 years, all the best
No! Check your local and State laws to be sure, but almost all states, (including community property states) require that there be a contract (marriage license, pre-nuptial etc.), or that you've been together long enough that in the eyes of the State you are married,(common law marriage)
Which normally runs somewhere between 5-10 years depending on the state, and some states have no common law marriage on the books.
There are always fine lines and interpretations that can be made by attorneys, so be smart, protect yourself.
