I have lived in my sig other's house for 12 years with him and the utilities bill is in my name. The house is only in his name. Is the house half mine because we have felt that we have a common law marriage? Does Florida still recognize common law in marriage?
Divorce / Separation Lawyer
We do not recognize common law marriage but there are complicated rule
governing equities in cases such as yours. You need to seek an experienced
attorney to see if you qualify for any of the exceptions to the general
rule that his house is his.
