How does homestead apply to a widow where her name was never on any deed,loan or title. Home is now deeded to children. Owner was going thru a divorce and disinherited the wife. What do we owe the wife?

The best thing you can do is check with an attorney who handles family law and real estate. It is fairly easy to check the local county recorder to see if she has any recorded interest in the property. One good family law attorney in Joliet is Paul Boetto at 815-726-7309. He would be the best one to consult.
