HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.
Under MA law, the division of property in a domestic partnership is treated the same as any other dissolution of a marriage.
Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.
And in that regard, the court will decide what is equitable as to the division of property acquired after the partnership was formed
Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.
However, even if the property was not acquired after the formation of the partnership the court will look at who put money into the property and why. So yes, you have rights.
