cohabitWhat is the name of your state? Georgia
I moved to Georgia from Pennsylvania in May of 2002. I moved in with my partner at that time. We have lived as man and wife, and have even referred to ourselves as such at times. I care for his 2 sons when they come to visit, and he cares for my son during times when I cannot be here.
After sharing an apartment with him and my son, we moved into a house in September of 2002. His is the only name on the mortgage because my divorce was not final at the time. We also bought a new car during this time.....in his name only also. I did finally get my divorce in June of 2003.
In November of 2003, my older son**************..age22....died. Then I lost my job due to corporate politics. (I filed a harrassment complaint, so they found a reason to discharge me.)
During this time he was supportive, yet also was upset because I wasn't working. I did, however, bring money into the home through Ebaying and from my ex husband.
Now he has stated that he thinks we need to sell the house and go our seperate ways because of financial difficulties....and because he can't deal with my sadness anymore.
I have put as much as, if not more, money into this home. I do all the work**************...painting, papering, cleaning, household chores, lawn care, landscaping, etc. I do not want to sell it. I want to continue to live here. My son needs stability.
What rights do I have?
