Is that (or any of this) even legal?Best,Ariana

My husband passed away 10 yrs ago. We have a house w/land

My husband passed away 10 yrs ago. We have a house w/land that is in both names and later purchased some adjoining land that was only put in his name. We wanted to leave these properties to our 4 children.I made a new will a few years ago that leaves the properties to our kids.Can I file for a quit claim deed to put both properties in only my name? My husband was previously married and has a estranged daughter and we never wanted her to receive any of our properties. I was hoping this might make it easier for our children after my death.Can doing this also prevent probate process since I have no debt? Thank you, ***** *****
