Legal Answers
560 Questions Answered
Q. Can you get an annulment in TN after 16 years of marriage that began while you were still married to your first wife
A: The second marriage is invalid. Consult local counsel to determine your options.
Q. How can a father give up his rights voluntary if the mother wants him to? Does someone have to adopt the child/children?
A: You would file a petition to terminate parental rights and litigate the issues. Consult counsel to see if your situation would qualify.
Q. Can you have the names on a deed changed?
A: You need to first determine whether your husband is the sole heir of the property. If his parents are alive, or there are siblings, this will help determine options. Typically, when someone dies without a will, property is passed to the next of kin by statute. The heir files an affidavit of heirship to obtain title. Then you can do what you want with the property. Fix it, sell it, etc. Consult with counsel to review the chain of title and get more info from you to best determine rights and options.
