Hello, I was in a De Facto relationship for nearly 8 years. I left in 2001. We had a house together and many other assests. He gave me $20k to get myself set up but then made me pay $10k to buy one of our assests back from him. At the time I was not willing to take him for a fair percentage of what I was entitled to as it would leave him in financial hardship. However, I am now finding myself in finicial hardship and unable to afford a home of my own while he currently sits in the one we owned together. My question is can I apply to the courts now under special circumstances for property settlement to claim a fair share of what I was entitled to? Cheers.
