I have lived with my mate (unmarried) for 5 years, in Pa. We have a joint checking account with out the and or between our names. All the funds put into this account have been in my name through direct deposit. He is not working and hasn't for quite some time. Now things seem to being going into the toilet.
He claims as his is the 1st name on the account, I cannot close the account or prove that all bills ect. have been paid by my income.
Is he legally in the right here? I am going to start another account in my name but he claims anything purchased using this account is his legally. Is he correct?? Any info much appreciated
