My ex and I have been divorced for 9 years and both of our names are on the deed of the house he has been living in. We lived there together for 20 years before we divorced. In the divorce decree it stated that he could live there as long as he made the payments but if he moved or defaulted then the house was to be sold and divided equally between us. So now that he has died does the house automatically go to me and does his children have any claim on it? He didn't have a will.
