Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
In order to be entitled to palimony, you'd have to prove that you both had an agreement whereby he would support you in exchange for you doing the work that you described. In other words, a palimony lawsuit is really a breach of contract lawsuit.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
