The answer depends in part upon who died first, your husband or the ex-wife? Another important factor is what does the divorce decree state? What is the property worth? What is the total value of your deceased husband's estate? Did he have a Will? Do you have a prenuptial agreement? Are any of the children minors at the date of his death? The question you ask is not a simple question. You should seek legal counsel and bring with you a copy of the divorce decree and information about the assets and the value of such assets in your husband's estate, without that it is difficult to determine your rights.
