Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice /legal service you should contact a local attorney.
In order for a person to have the title to the house changed to his / her name, the current owner would have to consent in writing and execute a new deed transferring the ownership to his/her mother or a court would have to order such change of ownership, which is generally done when a person files a lawsuit to quiet title (when the person / non-owner has legal grounds) and then the court will review the case and will decide whether to transfer title to the plaintiff's name based on the law.
I wish you the best of luck!
