A: If your question is whether or not, you may have an interest in the property that was owned by your dad, I would have to see the deed from which he received his ownership rights.

Nevertheless, If your dad and his wife lived at the property, while married, she probably has the right to live there for the rest of her life. If not, then you probably have some interest in the land. Research needs to be done.

Go visit a good Real Estate Attorney and bring all the paperwork and deeds for the visit to learn your status.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck!
