My son died suddenly last year and his wife was not living at the house. I sent my son the money to purchase the house, but was out of the country at the time of the purchase. He did not put my name on the documents because he assured me that the house would be separate property if he ever got married. When he died his wife cremated him without telling me anything, she prevented me from getting many of my personal belongings from the house, and told me months later that she dumped all of my stuff.
I have proof that I sent him the money to purchase the house. Can I take his wife to court?
