Good day. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
You may be able to make a claim of constructive trust to justify injunctive relief to stop your sister from doing anything with the deed other than signing it back to you.
You would need to prove the intent of the transfer was to provide protection of the property and that your sister agreed to return the property to you. In other words, she was acting as a trustee, not an owner.
Equitable remedies involve complex litigation and are beyond the abilities of most laypersons proceeding pro se.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys) . Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
http://www.martindale.com/Find-Lawyers-and-Law-Firms.aspxIt is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are all peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
