My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Because your husband inherited the house, even if his father had died after the wedding, that is his separate property and you would have no legal claim to it in the event of divorce. If you owned a home prior to the marriage
, that would be your home, however, if you sold it and shared the proceeds with your husband, that's considered a gift to the marriage.
If the business grew and expanded during the marriage, then there is an argument that you are entitled to half the proceeds of the increase in value. If money was made from the bulls that your father gave, you're entitled to some or all of that money, depending on whether the gift was only to you or to both of you.
Any other property acquired during the marriage, by either of you, is split 50/50. That may include money in bank accounts, cars, improvements made to the house or business, retirement accounts, and investments.
Should you remain married, and your husband dies without a will, you would receive one-half of his estate as the surviving spouse and the remaining estate would be divided among his children evenly. Wy. Stat., Section 2-4-101
. That would include half the value of the house and business. His ex-wife would receive nothing.
