  • My Legal Briefcase

    We are not married but we've been living together for 15 years. If we split up, do we have to share the value of our property?

    Maybe. Only married couples have an automatic legal right to half the value of family property. You can ask your spouse to pay you back for your contribution to property that your spouse owns. If your spouse does not agree, you can go to court to make your claim. But the claim will be based on another area of law, not family law. Ask a lawyer for advice.
