i just read that, thank you. but it doesn't clearly address our situation because this is referring to common law spouses where only one spouse is on title. My ex is not only on on title, but he's on the mortgage too.

With the proof you may be able to claim your inheritance money back and same for him with his inheritance money.

You paying mortgage is just part of the joys of living together, as would his handyman work.

Rest of the equity should be split 50/50.

That would deal with the house, then you have to figure something out for spousal. Go with the lower amount for least time, figure out a lump sum offer and give him the extra equity.
