If the children are under age...can the the mother (widow)

This answer was rated:

If the children are under age...can the the mother (widow) sign for the quitclaim deed?

No, the mother cannot sign on behalf of the children, and the children can't execute a deed because they're minors.


The only way to get around this is to file a petition in family law court to remove the child's minority to allow them to sign the deed.


The court will appoint a guardian ad litem for the children (lawyer) to make sure doing this is in their best interests, etc.


If you must go this route, I would suggest hiring a local attorney to help you.
