Cohabited continuously 30+ years, no commingling of funds (For obvious reasons), We commingled some daily funds for property maintenance, food, monthly bills and entertainment.
We have in place an interment contract showing our "Community Commitment" out to the public as a personified "marriage-like" relationship.
Your question is unclear. I have never heard of a hearing as to "vitality." Moreover, not knowing what the type of hearing is, I am not sure how or why you would need to "bring notice before the court." It sounds like you may be involved in a proceeding related to a committed intimate relationship ("CIR") I suggest you either comment on the post and clarify or re-post altogether. If you have questions about Washington law regarding CIRs, take a look at RCW chapter 26.60 (http://app.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=26.60) and go speak with an attorney. Given the length of the relationship, even if you didn't commingle funds, the court may divide up jointly owned assets.

I agree with previous counsel that your question is unclear. It sounds like you may have a committed intimate relationship. I would advise you to discuss your case with an experienced family law attorney who can help understand and answer your questions, and advise you as to whether you have a committed intimate relationship and how the court would deal with it.
I agree with previous counsel. Your question is unclear as presented. You would be well-served to consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area. The attorney can explain and clarify issues, the law, and considerations which would influence the court if you have an issue to put before the court. Good luck.
