Hello. My name is***** am a Florida licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Is your girlfriend on any documents related to the ownership of the house?
Did your girlfriend contributed her own money toward any improvements done on the house?
Thank you for your follow up.
Generally, since Florida does not recognize any type of "common law" marriages, as long as, the live in girlfriend's name is ***** ***** the title to the house and she has not contributed to any improvement related to the property, she would not be generally legally entitled to any proceeds if the house owner by her boyfriend is sold.
I wish you the best of luck!
