My ex and I were never married but lived together for 5 years in WI, share a child, had a joint checking, and though the eyes of my employer were domestic partners. She owned the house we lived in. I put about $15,000 into refurbishing the house, along with anther $10,000 of items that we bought together. I also supported her through her bankruptcy. Paid for $25,000 dollars worth in vacations. She was also able to save about $60,000 into her 401k while we were together. The big question is do I have a case to sue her for the division of assets in her possession even though we were not married?
