Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you this morning.
North Dakota does not recognize common law marriage so you don't have to worry about him making a claim that you are married and that these assets are marital assets. Since you are not married and you purchased these assets in your own name with your money, these assets are your sole and separate property. They remain your sole and separate property as long as you keep them titled in your own name. He does not become entitled to any ownership of these assets simply because you happen to live together.
Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as OK, Good or Excellent (hopefully Good or Excellent).

He can 1/2 o the joint account, but that doesn't give him any ownership rights for the house or the autos! Those are titled in your name and belong to you as your sole and separate property.
