My girlfriend has been living with me for 4 years. Could she have legal grounds to demands portions of my assets, in the case that we separate? She does not pay rent, and contributes approximately 5 percent of the household financials. We have relocated to multiple states over the past 4 years, but currently reside in Maryland. Thank you.

You asked: Could she have legal grounds to demands portions of my assets, in the case that we separate? The answer is No, not unless you had a cohabitation agreement or a contract in which you agreed to pool your property or support each other. My answer assumes you did not have any children together. If you did, that would present a different issue. I hope this information is helpful.
