If the sale was of marital property the proceeds would go to the husband and wife. Not the new wife.

Your question is too complicated and much more information would need to be known. The answer is "maybe" or "maybe not". You should consult with an attorney.

Whether your father's new wife would receive any of the proceeds of the mobile home sale would depend on the agreement your parents had on the division of their property. If your father was to receive some or all of the proceeds of the sale and placed the money in some property held jointly with his new wife, such as a joint bank account, she would be entitled to half of the value of that account, including the deposited proceeds. If he is not to receive any of the proceeds or if he keeps any money received in an account or other property separate from his new wife, she would not have a right to any of the funds.

Not if none of her money went into it. Since this is a divorce, she has no rights to anything unless she loaned them money and wants her loan paid.
