Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
I see that you posted some details about your situation, but I don't actually see a legal question...
If you can post your question, I will try to help.
I need to know if it is illegal for my brother to quick deed his half of my parents so to his wife when he is on his death bed and on narcotic pain medication.
No, it is not illegal for him to do so. However it could be challenged as a fraudulent conveyance if he was forced to do so or was so under medication that he couldn't understand what he was doing. But if he is still living and this is something that he wants to do, then there is nothing legally that you could do to prevent him from making his wife a part owner of his portion of the home.
So if you go and talk to him and he confirms that this is what he wants to do, then you don't have a legal recourse here. But if he says this is not what he wanted, then you need to record him saying that so that it could be later used in a challenge to the validity of the deed from him adding his wife.
But if you were both listed on the deed as "tenants in common" and he is legally married, his spouse would inherit his share of the house anyway if he passes without a will or leaves it to her in his will.
