I'm sorry to hear about your situation. You may be able to figure out whether he can tear down the fence based on where the property line is. So, if the fence is on your property line, it is obviously yours. If it is on his side of the property line, it is obvious his. However, if you share it, then it becomes the responsibility of the both of you. It's going to be difficult, but negotiating is going to be key in this particular case. The bright side is that he cannot tear it down without compensating you for the tear down. On the other hand, you can't control what happens to the fence. You may need to hire a surveyor to help you figure it out for sure, but talking with your neighbor may be the best thing to do.
