House normally belongs to title holder. On passing, if there is no will, passes to spouse and children to the extent living.

where do i stand when it comes to getting the money from fema on getting my house fixed
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 8 months ago

You want to place house in your name first, which if not done, has to happen through an estate lawyer and the surrogate court. You can apply for the relief with the pending application and money could be escrowed if needed pending the outcome of the proceedings. An estate lawyer locally can be found using avvo.com.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
