If my dad had no Will and his girlfriend is still living in his house and has everything, what do I do?

Question Details: My dad's live-in girlfriend won't let me have any of my father's things. They weren't married but she signed his death certificate as next of kin and stated that she was his wife. All I wanted was 1 of the 3 vehicles, his necklace and his hunting rifles and gun cabinet. She has the house and everything else. I am an only child and need help. My dad didn't have a Will. He died suddenly from liver failure due to sarcomatoid carcinoma, a very rare cancer. His girlfriend's name isn't on anything; everything was in my dad's name only. How do i get what is rightfully mine?
