Bless you. My phone number here in Sacramento is 916 880-6346.
Is there nothing new in Probate that would allow this to be viewed as a "failed Gift"? The attorney I was in deposition with today seemed to think so and yelled at me, "You are going to lose your house."
The Grant Deed is signed April 10, 2010 and I filed it a day after her death which was February 13, 2011.
Also, the original law firm which did the Trust drafted the deed. Boy you are up late. I can't sleep with the thought of loosing my home.
Sleep tight, with your answer, I know I will.
