My question involves civil rights in the State of: California.
My boyfriend and I moved in together with the understanding that I would quit my only steady job and stay at home and take care of our two girls. I would pay the utilities, he would pay the rent. Six weeks after my daughter and I moved into his house, and after I quit my job he came home one day and acted competely irrational (due to work problems I guess). He literally told us to leave (for no reason) and we left. Not to return. He put all of our stuff in storage without our permission that night. We were left homeless (no family around)and I was jobless because of his promises that he would take care of us. I had to get storages for our things and go live with friends. What recourse do I have in small claims court - I want to go for the storage fees, the rent on our new place and emotional stress. Can I do this since I know I can prove that we did have a verbal agreement.
