Customer Question
I have a 15...

I have a 15 year old daughter...only child ...but I recently got married to an uncertain man...feeling worried about preserving my inheritance to my daughter, I would like to know if or when I can add or transfer the deed to her while I'm still alive...you never know, of course. we live in pennsylvania

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

No...I recently been thinking about this issue more as my marriage is rocky and my husband does not own any real estate...

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Pa

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Well, since you asked, I was wondering,..if I should divorce my husband at some point, would he be entitled to my house ...it was passed down to me when my mother was alive 20 years ago...we have been married for almost 4 years

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. The home in question...if I understand, you inherited that home. Can you tell me, is there a mortgage on the home...or have you made substantial improvements to the home during your marriage?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
