Domestic partner rights in Ohio

Akron, OH |

I've been in a domestic partnership with my boyfriend for about 10 years now (I'm a female) and he asked me to move out. I don't have a job, I lost it a few months ago.
What kind of rights do I have? Can I ask for alimony or anything like that?

Probably not. Historically, courts have recognized common law marriage to a certain degree. However, the contemporary view does not favor a situation like yours. I would find it very unlikely that a court would grant you any financial support.
