She should have the rights to the house. Normally when a person dies without a will, the state has a default will that they use to determine who gets the assets. Check with an attorney for your state. * In every state the current spouse of the deceased is entitled to the homestead or a portion thereof. Generally the largest portion of an estate is awarded to the surviving spouse by means of the state probate succession laws when the person dies intestate. Furthermore, the primary residence of the married couple is never entered into probate procedure in community property states or included in probate procedure in other states unless the property title bears the names of persons other than the surviving spouse.

How do you get back at your husband if he ignores you in front of your kids?

Getting back at your husband for ignoring you in front of your children is immature and it is wiser when the children are not around to discuss this bad behavior by your husband. It's not about getting even with your husband, but trying to work out your problems in you marriage. If he will not discuss this problem then suggest seeing a marriage counselor and if he refuses that then tell him that you are not staying in a marriage where he ignores you in front of the children because both of you are suppose to raise your children with good manners and not show them how to demean a woman.
