I have a civil union in Vermont and my partner and I recently separated. Vermont has a residency law stating that we must live in VT to dissolve the union, however we both live in NYC and cannot move to VT. My partner has been somewhat reckless since the separation, getting rid of his health insurance and quitting his job. H has several bills that were put in my name and he has agreed to pay, not to mention that I could be responsible if anything were to happen to him.
Is there any way around these laws
if not can we draw up some other sort of agreement stating what each of us is responsible for and will it hold up in court?
