My domestic partner and I: 1. Started a business (in her name) 2. Bought a home (in her name, I gave her money for the mortgage in the form of a gift letter). We only put those two things in her name out of necessity, not because we wanted to (long story, possible duress, possible undue influence). I spent $15,000 on credit cards renovating the home and the business. I had to file bankruptcy because of this after we split up (she knew I would have to and asked my friends to help me months before we split up.) I was on her health insurance as a domestic partner, btw. Now she has the home (worth $75,000 in equity) , the business (worth $80,000+) and I have no money and I am bankrupt. I want to sure her for the equity in the home, the value of the business and future profits, renovations.
