My fiance and I are separating. We have lived together off

Resolved Question:

My fiance and I are separating. We have lived together off and on for 7 years in California and for the last two and a half years in St. Louis. During the "off" times he was suppporting me about 95 percent. Sometimes when we were not living together, I would be living at his place.

I have been primary caregiver to him (he has Parkinson's) and at the present time I have medical power of attorney as well as major beneficiary of his wiil.

Am I entitled to any support?

But it is possible
