The answer to both of your questions is "yes". Generally, and in most states , a person who holds title to real estate as a tenant in common with others, can execute a deed of his interest to someone else. a married person can make property changes prior to a divorce hearing unless the court has previously issued a restraining order against such transfers which they usually do. if there was a restraining order in effect, then such property transfers prior to the divorce hearing might be voided by the court.
