If you're not married, she's not entitled to any of your property. However, any joint property is obviously divisible.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Sorry forgot to add if time of relationship ie several years matter? Is there also a common law in new york state? thanks

Expert:  Roger replied 6 years ago.

No, that doesn't matter. New York doesn't allow common law marriage.
