Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

does my husband still have rights to the property if he signs off the deed?

.

No, if he signs off on a deed transferring the property to you, it becomes your sole and separate property and he no longer has any rights to it at all. When he gives up his ownership, he gives up all rights that come along with being an owner.
