Good afternoon JoAnn,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your daughter's situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.Under the law, you may add your daughter to the title of your home now, as a joint tenant with rights of survivorship, or you may give your home to her in your will. Either way, the gift that you give to her under the law will be her personal property, and her husband will not have any legal right to the propertyUnder the law, inheritances and gifts by third parties to a married person, become the private property of that person, and their spouse is not entitled to any benefit from that gift.You may reply back to me again, using the Reply to Expert link, if you have additional questions.I wish you the best in your future,Doug
