Money was lent to married Gay spouse to make mtg payments. Only personal checks were written that specified purpose of payments, the loan acct number, and purpose. Checks specifically stated funds as "loan". Spouse, a 12-year experienced real estate lawyer, in consideration for assistance, verbally agreed to both add me to the mortgage documents and to hire an atty to create a will naming me as sole beneficiary upon his death. He is now selling the house to a private investor, under a foreclosure short-sale transaction. I am going to separately file a UCC Article 9 lien notice regarding my checks later this week. What are my rights to sue my spouse directly, in view of the fact that Florida does not recognize Gay marriages, under Florida civil law? Thank you.
