My husband passed away recently and he and his mother where listed on the mortgage of the home. When they refinanced the home several years ago I signed off of the mortgage since my credit was bad. My mother in law is now selling the home and my question is do I have any rights to funds from the sell of this home as his wife?

Possibly. In part, it would depend on how the house was titled. Did your husband own 1/2 and his mother the other? Did title automatically get transferred to her upon his death? I would need to see the will and title to the house in order to answer your question.
