My exhusband died 3months ago without a will in Texas. his only surviing heirs
are 1) his 2nd wife and 2) our 14yr old son. My ex husband had a fully paid off seperate property home before marrying his 2nd wife who is now his widow. She wants to sell the house that's worth about $240,000. She is 40yrs old, I'm trying to understand bot***** *****ne - given she has a "1/3 life interest" in this house - if it's sold next month - how much would my 14yr old son recieve? everything else has gone to her passing outside of estate
(ex's large 401k, life insurance and pension)
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Also this seperate real propety house was not my ex-husband & his 2nd wife's homestead - their homestead was her seperate property house that he paid off during their marriage
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: My ex husband paid off his 2nd wifes seperate property house in the amount of $125,000 during their marriage - I'm assuming my son is also entitled to 50$ of that $125,000 payment to the mortgage principal in his step-mothers seperate probery house
