Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Because I want to provide you with the most accurate answer possible, do you mind if I take a moment to review your question?
Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
Thanks for your patience. Unlike a marriage, parties who are living together do not have to split their property at the time of the relationship's end. This means that if you purchased those items, then they are yours. Unless you gave them to him as a gift or unless you promised him that he would have an ownership interest, you can take them with you when you move out.
Because I value your input, I would like to know what other questions did you have for me today that I can help out with:-)?
Yes, you can. I would work out a solution with him that allows you to take what you need out of the home such that it won't cause him to try to call the police and you having to deal with their investigation of everything. The cops will consider it a civil matter, but it could still be a hassle.
Did you have any other questions for me at all today?
The pleasure is all mine! Unless you have additional questions, there’s just a few other things I’d like you to know before we wrap up this conversation:
