Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer!

I want to make sure I understand your question before answering.

Are you asking if you are entitled to a share of the inheritance from your first husband whom you had divorced prior to his death?

Once I have more information I will be glad to help you.

Thank you,

Thank you for your follow-up.

Unfortunately, divorce cuts all rights that are associated with marriage regardless to whether or not the spouses remarry.

I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but this is the answer I must provide. Please let me know if you need me to further clarify my answer and I will do my best to so clarify. I am glad to help!

Thank you,
