My mother inherited land that she and my father live on. Both her and my father's names are ***** ***** deed to the land. My mother wants to know if she leaves my father and in doing so moves somewhere where she can live a better life Can my father claim she abandoned her rights to the property?
Family Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 8 months ago

Thank you for the information.

No, he cannot do that. Even if he tried to claim that, no Court will side with him. Your mother retains her rights to her property unless your mother signs a Quitclaim Deed releasing her rights to the property to your father.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.
