How to handle a complicated break up?

I find myself in a difficult situation. Last fall, my girlfriend of six years and I got a house together. Even though I put $10K towards paying off her debt and other bills to make the house a possibility, the house is in her name. Now she wants to separate. (She has not mentioned the guy she has been seeing.)
I am still looking for work. I have no relatives in the area. When I tell her that I want my money I am sure that she is going to argue that she has been supporting me and therefore does not owe me anything.
I am left trying to figure out; Where am I going to go? How am I going to get there? Is there any way I can get her to give me back my money? (I really need it back if I am going to be starting over.)

Well hopefully you have kept paperwork. And if you have you can take her to court. If not your screwed! I myself, would just walk away. No relatives in the area? Get ahold of some, borrow bus fare and just go. Hopefully you have atleast one understanding friend or relative that will help. But if you did not leave a paper trail about the money, just call it a learning experiance and move on!
I have a friend that had the same happen to him, now he is living with friends while she lives in the new house and drives the new car, and he is left picking up the pieces,cause he trusted her!
