My girlfriend bought a home before she was married; then later on married; she is now separated after 18 years of marriage. He has put in ‘sweat equity’ during the time on the home and property. He said he deserves a portion of this. She asked me whom is right. I don’t know as I ‘m not a lawyer.
There are no children; just pensions. He has moved out and renting a place; she is still in the paid for home.
