I have signed no papers....my ex boyfriend whom I dated 5 plus years...and lived with a little over 1 1/2 has come up with a list of debts that I owe him....as a couple I don't think I should owe it to him... He is a sue happy person...and Is actually suing his adult children for half of his ex wifes estate...there were divorced... He has come up with an amount of $4000.00 dollars...and has said he would drop it to $2600.00 if I paid him right away.... this man is a sue happy person....what should I do....has he borrowed me money yes...have I paid him...yes...above and beyond what he states...
Actually anyone can be taken to court. The real question is will the person who is suing the other person win? You say your ex is a "sue happy person." He should have a record for filing lawsuits and hopefully some of the lawsuits were dismissed as being frivolous. If so get a lawyer now if you want to use that to protect yourself.
