Does my mother have the rights to her ex husbands home?

My father married another woman before he divorced my mother. He and this woman married in April, but the divorce was NOT final until July. My father passed away and his then thought to be wife (girlfriend) filed a quick deed on the house they were living in. My mother is receiving his SSI. Does my mother have the rights to this house?

I would question if the second marriage is valid if he wasn't legally divorced prior to marrying for the second time.

I suggest speaking to an attorney in their state who is well versed on this topic.

Good luck
