It depends on a few things. Were you on title to the house? Did you buy the house during the marriage? If you have a community property interest in the house, he can't give it away. Also, if it's your homestead, you may still have occupancy rights to the house.

It depends on whether or not the house was separate property. He was entitled to bequeath his property to whomever he wanted. His will can only transfer his property. So, if the house was community property, he could not bequeath your half to anyone.
