I am considering whether or not I should move in with my

I am considering whether or not I should move in with my boyfriend of 1.8 years and my 4-year-old daughter into his home next year when my lease expires (in June). We have very strong feelings for each other and a long-term wish to be together. He treats my daughter as his own. He is divorced and has a 22-year-old daughter who DOES NOT live with him. My wish for the future is to get married but I am feeling a little uncertain about moving in without being married to him in a house that is and will ALWAYS be his (as it would be prior to marriage). At the moment, if he dies, his house will go to his daughter, so I asked him if he dies and my daughter and I are in his house, what will happen to us. He said he would have to modify things. So I don't know how exactly he could protect me in this matter. If I move in with him, what's the best way to protect my daughter and I legally regarding the housing situation and also regarding other issues that may come up that I may not be aware of? thank you!

Divorce – Reimbursement of Contribution In dividing

Divorce – Reimbursement of ContributionIn dividing community property during divorce in Nevada, “If a party has made a contribution of separate property to the acquisition or improvement of property held in joint tenancy, the court may provide for the reimbursement of that party for his or her contribution.” “In determining whether to provide for the reimbursement…, the court shall consider: (a) The intention of the parties in placing the property in joint tenancy; (b) The length of the marriage; and (c) Any other factor which the court deems relevant in making a just and equitable disposition of that property.” NRS 125.150 http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-125.htmlI sold my real property in Oregon that I bought before marriage (i.e., separate property) and did a like-kind (1031) exchange to acquire raw land in NV. The land was initially titled as my separate property. Then, not understanding the ramifications, I immediately quit-claimed it into joint ownership with right of survivorship, adding my wife to title. Later, we built a house on it; each contributing to the work and cost. We are divorcing now and I'd like to be reimbursed my contribution of separate property. What is a convincing “intention” that would cause a judge to provide for reimbursement of my contributed separate amount?
