Hi,

I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.

No matter how many years you and your partner have lived together in North Carolina, your state does not recognize common law marriages, and your arrangement can never be eligible for the benefits that a marriage confers unless/until you actually get legally married.

That means you have been informed correctly. You cannot have joint coverage under your policy. And if you're holding yourself out as a lawful husband and wife in order to get such coverage, you'd be committing a fraud and breaking the law.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

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.
