I live in Mississippi...

I live in Mississippi & have been in a same sex relationship for 20 years. We are now separating & my partner thinks she can take everything out of the house that she has a receipt for.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No, but she has, He's telling her she can take everything. The house was furnished when she moved in, but as things wore out, she replaced a lot of it.

Good. What's the answer?? Also, we are not married

I am afraid that absent any written contract to the contrary, the lawyer is advising her correct. If she can prove she purchased any items, she is entitled to take them legally. If you object, you are going to have to file suit against her for your reimbursement for anything you paid for that she is taking and you can take her to court to get the court to decide who is entitled to what property.

Right now, if she has receipts proving she bought it, legally she can take it.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
