Best Answer

The owner of the property (presumed to be the husband in this case) goes with his wife to a title company and has a new deed to the home drawn up making his wife a joint owner.

The couple should be well informed of the different ways of titling real property and use the method that affords the most protection for the property, such as Tenancy By The Entirety which is available only to married couples in some US states.

If your house is in your child's name and he dies can his wife take the house?

Generally, yes. If the house in is your child's name, it is not legally your house. If he dies without a will the property will pass to his next of kin. If he is married his wife will acquire an interest along with his children or she may inherit the house as her sole property. If he has no children then his siblings may share the property with his wife. You can check the rules in your state at the link below.You should speak with an attorney who can explain your options and the consequences before doing that type of estate planning on your own.
