A: Your girlfriend will have to prepare/sign a Last Will and Testament naming her you as to 25% if she desires to leave you a certain percentage of assets from her estate. She would also name the other beneficiaries and their percentages.

She should also name you as a 25% beneficiary of her life insurance policy directly with the Company who holds the policy. If she does not change the beneficiary designation on her Life Insurance those proceeds will [most likely] go through Probate before any beneficiary receives his/her share.
