My husband died suddenly in 2002. Leaving behind a property that his father had purchased to secure his and his brothers future ! The property was also where my husband ran a 2 Story Hallmark Business since 1992. In August 2012, unbeknownst to me, my brother in law sold the property for $12 million. Now before the purchase, paperwork was drawn up, Stating in the event of a separation, or divorce between my husband and I . That I would be entitled to 50% of my husbands 50% . But he died on Sept 8 2002 and we were still married. And his brother took the entire profile of the sale ! And never even told me that he sold it!! I must still be entitled to Half of The entire Sale ! Reply
