Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
Can you tell me who got the property in the divorce settlement??
If this was not divided by the divorce then each party has a half interest here community property.
The husbands half here passes under the laws of intestacy--which means no will.
If you die with:here’s what happens:
Kids inherit his half here if property was not divided in the divorce.Wife has her share.
Wife can either buy out the kids interest or force a sale and proceeds are divided here.
The divorce here predates the death so if the settlement agreement awarded this to one of them then that controls who has what interest.If no property settlement wife has her half and his children share the other half under laws of intestacy.
