What is the surviving spouse entitled to of the deceased estate?

It depends on if your spouse had a Will. You could get everything, you could get nothing. In my grandmother's Will she left her house to me where if there was no Will the house would have been sold and the money would have been split between her 5 children. In this case there was no spouse. Usually if there is no Will it all stays with the spouse. From there it goes to children.

If one spouse dies the ther spouse automacilly receives home correct?

Depends which spouse was actually paying the mortgage/paid for the house. If the deceased spouse paid for the house in it's entirety, it is their choice (which they will state in their will) of who the house goes to. If they do not state, it will probably go to the other spouse unless another family member contests the decision (for example, if you'd just married the spouse, who has adult offspring, they would be entitled to challenge the decision of the house going to yourself). If the mortgage/payment of the house was 50:50, it's not clearcut unless the deceased did leave their share of the house to you. (Although your 50% is still legally yours). If they wish to leave it to someone else, you can go to a court to contest the decision. If the house was a gift, it depends which of you it was actually gifted too. Although being married to the spouse does usually protect your right to the house (unless you were responsible for their death).

How do you file a deed to change title of house after a spouse dies?

If the married couple took title to the property as "tenants by the entirety" (a method of taking title reserved for persons married), then there is a right of survivorship whereby the surviving spouse becomes the sole owner of the property. This happens automatically. Typically, you would also file/record an "affidavit of surviving tenant by the entirety" indicating that one of the spouses has deceased so that when/if you go to sell the home, the title company and buyer will not be looking for the signature of the deceased spouse.

If your spouse dies and your house is in your name via community property change are you then responsible for debts incurred by the deceased spouse?

I am not certain what you mean by "community property change", unless it pertains to a divorce decree. If you live in a community property state, and the debts were incurred while you are married. The spouse is indeed responsible for those debts. In non-community property states the person who contracted the debt, is the only person responsible. Therefore, the debt(s) usually "die" with the deceased person. There are exceptions, however, some states have laws which make the spouse responsible if the debts are defined as "necessities". Such as medical expenses, food, shelter, etc.
