Where do I stand if my boyfriend died and the house was in his name?

Question Details:

My boyfriend of 5 years passed 3 days ago but he had no Will. He owned the house. When I moved in there wasn't anything; we paid for eveything in the house together. He had told his family that his last wish was for me and my 8 year-old grandson to stay here until I pass on. We were to get married in 3 months. I feel that his family will come in here and take everything that we built together and put me and my grandchild out into the streets.
