Question: What rights does a girlfriend have?

Can you marry someone who passed away?

In the U.S., federal law doesnt recognize posthumous marriage ceremonies, but a few people have tried to conduct one anyway. After Floridian Isaac Woginiak passed away, his surviving fiancée successfully filed for a marriage license in 1988.

What am I entitled to after split from my partner?

If youre married or in a civil partnership you can ask for financial support from your ex-partner as soon as you separate. This is known as spousal maintenance and is a regular payment to help you pay bills and other living costs. You cant get spousal maintenance if you werent married or in a civil partnership.
