So, what you were looking for something called palimony. Palimony Is generally defined as continued support given by one person in a relationship to their not marry partner. Unfortunately, the State of Florida does not recognize this form of palimony. Essentially, the properties that you and your fiance have together are going to just be considered properties that you hold in joint tenancy or as co-tenants. Additionally, if you guys were to break up, then neither you nor the other party or going to owe an obligation to provide maintenance or support to the other. Basically, until you get married come with the law will treat you as if you are two entirely separate people.

Although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied so follow up questions are free. Before rating your opinion of my service, feel free to ask any additional questions.
