I am sorry to hear that. I hope she is doing ok. She may have a right to some support. Do you know if the agreement they had was written? If so that is an easy case. If not she may still be entitled to support. In a Palimony or Marvin Claim, a non-marital partner’s right to monetary support or property is dependent upon an expressed or implied contract, or some other fair and legal basis for the claim. I think the evidence that he made arrangements to take care of her in the event of death helps the case a lot.
