Before we married my wife and I signed a pre-nuptial protecting our individual assets, and our paid-for home was in her name. My wife died after we were married only 15 months and we had not redone or wills. I was not listed in her will, and her children were the only beneficiaries. Now, the children want to sell the home, and I'm being asked to sign a statement releasing my homestead interest.\r\n
Under Texas law,\r\n
Is it necessary that I sign to release the homestead interest?\r\n
Can the home be sold without my releasing the homestead interest?
