I would need more information to help advise you here.  Are you divorced?  How long with the guy?  If you were never married and you have been together for under 10 years, I do not think that you are going to be able to get a 50-50 split.  Why are you on the mortgage?  could he not get a loan?  In any event, The will look at you like real estate co-venturers or partners.  You and he agreed to the percentage split when you bought the house.  I think that you are stuck with that.  When you house is sold, the mortgage will get paid off (hopefully) and you will split the proceeds according to your percentage interests.  Unfortunately, i think you should have sought more of an interest in the property as you took all the risk here.  The loan is secured by the house.  Ultimately, you are liable to the bank.
