Does your partner have a "will?" Eventhough a "will" can be contested you would have a better leg to stand on. You should also talk to your attorney about a "Quitclaim Deed" that your partner can have drawn up.

To put it bluntly, if your name is not on a legal document (will, power of attorney, durable power of health, etc) legally you will be entitled to nothing. It's actually very easy to do. I've drawn up wills, etc for my aunt, mother and father using simple forms purchased at Office Max. Witnessed and notarized they are as binding as any other legal document. If your partners assets are a bit more complicated I would seek the advice of a lawyer.

That's the easy part. The difficult part is discussing it with a loved one and making sure you secure a future that is legally binding.

Oi,  just ended a 4 year legal battle over my late-partner's estate. Check with an attorney, find out what laws apply to you guys in your state, have everything in a legal, witnessed notarized contract (will or better yet a trust), have a no contest clause written, have everything you own of value written in the will and do it "yesterday"

and yes, you will be screwed if you don't.  Good luck to you and get this done now.
