You'll have to look at the deed to determine who owns the house. If they are divorced and she's not a title holder than the house would pass to the next eligible heir by statute. Consult a local attorney to determine what options, if any, you may have.
More than likely the home was owned as Tenants By The Entirety, where the survivor takes the fee. So the surviving spouse had individual title, and the issue nothing. Home would have never been in probate estate since no insolvency. If title was not in the husband and wife, then there may be a...Read more »
Either the Administrator or the actual Heirs at Law need to file a Detainer Warrant immediately. Hire a competent attorney to get it going.

Your daughter should engage a landlord-tenant eviction attorney to help her carry out the process of eviction legally. The amount of notice that must be given to the existing tenants depends on the duration of the lease.
What is your question? It appears that you lost the Divorce, and your only alternative is to file a timely Appeal. There was nothing wrong with the Deed as you describe it. And I would presume the Daughter has the Remainder still subject to the Wife's Life Estate.

No probate possible with no assets. Let daughter try to file suit or probate it, where you would make a claim against the Estate. Title may be difficult, but a lost title application may suffice. You are far too worried about this.

Why did you file Probate? You may have needed to, or you may have wasted alot of money and time. But any creditor can actually claim against the Estate up to one year from death of the decedent. You should have considered this initially, and may have instead sold it to a cash purchaser. If...Read more »
Has it been at least a year since your mother passed? They might be waiting for all potential claims against your mother to expire. In the meantime, those proceeds must be kept available to pay claims. You will probably need to provide a TennCare release too.
The next week I went to probate court and obtained a copy of my mother’s will. I also learned that the probate case pertaining to my own mothers will was still active meaning never closed. My mother’s spouse who received her estate remarried a year and a half after my mother passed. So this new... Read more »
There is too much missing information in your recitation of the facts to provide an answer in this forum. You should schedule a consultation with a local probate attorney to help you. Rarely is probate a do-it-yourself project.

That is correct. The witnesses, if you go that route, cannot be related to the principal by blood, marriage, or adoption and must not be entitled to any portion of the estate of the principal upon the death of the principal, i.e. not an heir or beneficiary.
Your facts have some mistakes. But I believe what you are asking is whether the daughter can inherit from both her actual Father and her adopted Father. No.... Once she is adopted, that is her Father and she has no relationship with her biological Father from the Adoption Order

If any of the heirs are wanting to sell the home quickly, then you will need to probate both your grandfather's estate and then your father's estate. If you all plan to hold the property for many years, then this can be handled with affidavits of heirship. Neither of these are do-it-yourself...Read more »
No it is not equal to all relatives. It is halved between the Paternal and Maternal Heirs however.
