A: It's hard to "un-sign" a waiver. So, I suggest she talk to counsel first.

A: Until an attorney can review the entirety of the situation it's difficult to provide you with advice. As Mr. Epling said, a probate attorney would be needed to look at the current circumstances and discuss the options available to you.

Best of luck.

A: No meaningful answer is possible until an expert real estate attorney has the opportunity to look at the form and interview you to understand your family.
