What are the inheritance rights of a husband when his wife dies?

When a wife dies, her husband has the rights as defined by state law. The husband=s rights will depend on the law of the state where the wife lived when she died. The husband=s rights may depend on whether the wife had a valid last will and testament or revocable living trust when she died. The husband=s rights may depend on the last will and testament or revocable living trust, but the husband may have other rights under state law, including the right to take property of a value more than was given under a last will and testament.
