Legal Question

Asked on: 3/15/13, 2:50 pm

My ex husband passed away. He had remarried. When we were married we jointly owned a two family house. The divorce papers stated that I would sign over my half of the house in exchange for him paying me either $5000.00 or would pay me the rent from both apartments as long as he owned it. I had not received anything but was content in knowing that the back taxes were paid and that my name was off of the property. Now I found out that according to the deed currently recorded in our county, my name is listed on the deed. Am I entitled to anything from the proceeds of the house or do I have any responsibilities as far as the house is concerned or does this go to his wife as part of the estate?
