What kind of a payout is he demanding?
Should I assume that there's no cohabitation agreement?
I'm back. Sorry for the delay. This site is set up like a chat, but I'm not an employee and I'm not in front of my computer 24/7.
The first place to start is to look at how much your joint wealth has increased while you were together. While he's not going to take half of your house or investments, he's got a claim on the increase in the growth of those assets. So how much is the home worth now compared to when he moved in? I'm getting the impression that it was paid off when he moved in, right?
I'm still here if you want to discuss the matter.
