Updating his will and living trust and our attorney here in Cali says we need the legal terms for a transfer of deed (I think) and since she is not licensed in Florida, she needs a referral. Hope that makes sense.

She is supposed to sell the home and then split it between us but she says because the house is in pre-foreclosure she's not going to execute the will is that fair to any of us I thought in the state of Florida you have to execute the will within 10 days

You can always void an earlier will by creating a new will and revoking the previous will. You may have rights as surviving spouse depending on his residence at time of death. Contact a lawyer where he died or where his residence was at time of death to discuss.
