There is nothing in your narrative that suggests your father's wife would not be entitled to a portion of his estate. Unfortunately, you'll have to visit a local attorney if you want to try to prove that she was never legally married to your father or to otherwise challenge her rights as surviving spouse. You can find local attorneys here on Avvo. Good luck!
