Good morning. I am sorry to hear about this. While Arizona does not have common law marriage, you could possibly be entitled to go after her contractually, based upon the agreements you had with her. Parties who have resided together may have remedies in contract law to receive reimbursement for property purchased together and similar claims. If the agreement was that she works full time and you care for the kids and you gave up a career for this and in reliance on it, you could try and go after her and sue.
Thank you and please allow me moment
Yes and as a result, you would need to sue her and go after her, for what you believe you are owed, as a result of this agreement. If it was clear that you would give up your career, to take care of the kids and she would work and support the family and now refuses to do so, you could have a basis to sue her.
If she never did this, she could be filing a fraudulent claim. You could report her if you learned of this and the IRS could go back and look to see what she claimed.
If you do not have the funds to retain an attorney, you need to start by speaking with legal aid today and seeing if they can represent you. If you have lived in the home, you can remain and if she wants you out, would need to evict you through the court.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
