Our home is only in my Husbands name. Do I have rights to it when he dies?

Yes. In Mississippi, there are homestead rights for surviving spouses regardless of ownership.  Also, if he leaves a Will and does not leave you what you like you can renounce his will and take a portion of the estate. If no will, you are also entitled to part of his estate.

If there is a premarital agreement the provisions in it could affect your rights mentioned above.
