I recently ended an 11 year relationship. We were never married, but did live together. I was on his company insurance as his domestic partner (and I have a notarized document stating that I was his domestic partner that was necessary for his insurance), written into his will and we built a home together. I left the home and did not take much as far as furniture or household goods. The home we built together was paid for as we built over 5 years. I was advised that I may be entitled to a percentage of the value of the home. I an trying to find out how to proceed to see if this is in fact true. We resided in Tulsa Oklahoma. Thank you, ***** *****
