He has no claim to anything at all.

First, he would not share in assets brought into the relationship.

Also, he would not share in any inheritance.

But also, he is not even a common law spouse after living together for such a short while.

So he has no claim to support either.

He can be told to get out at any time and must do so and doesn't get a thing from you.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.

Is there a time limit in which the common law status changes and he would then be able to get anything ?
Would he ever have rights to anything
House
Inheritance
??
Anything ?
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

If he becomes a common law spouse he would possibly be entitled to spousal support.

He would not share in the inheritance.

He would share in the increase in value of he house over the course of your relationship.

You are common law spouses after cohabiting for two years.

You can protect yourself by having a cohabitation agreement.
