Palimony & Cohabitation

Richard F. Sperling

Verbal promises made to you by someone you lived with are enforceable in California.  If a person in a romantic relationship made a promise to you and is breaching their promise, the courts will enforce the verbal promise.  To be enforceable, the promise made to you must have been a specific promise to provide you with money or support (“palimony”).  Promises we may enforce include a promise of joint ownership of a specific asset, or a promise that all of the assets that were acquired by a party while living together would be jointly owned in the event of a break-up.

Richard Sperling is prepared to be your advocate, and represent you to enforce promises made to you for “palimony” and/or joint ownership of assets.
