Does Florida's Equitable Distribution law apply when the couple were not formally married but have lived together continuously for 12 years?
The short answer is no. There may be some other theories of why you are entitled to certain portions of assets, but you should consult an attorney about your specific circumstances. Generally, without marriage, how assets are titled is how they would be apportioned.
