Flushing, NY asked in Estate Planning and Probate for New York

Q: What entitlements does my mom have?

Hello I live in New York City. My mother and father have been legally married for 30 years. My dad brought the house I live in now way before he married my mom and before me and my siblings were born. My dad recently had a stroke and is in rehab right now. My dad has the deed to the house but my moms name is not on it. His mother (who passed away) was the cosigner so now there is no cosigner to the house. He did write a will and trust but one lawyer said the trust isnt complete or something but he has a will. Is my mom still entitled to the home?

A: I'm sorry your question remains open for three weeks. This may be something that's closer to the "Probate" and "Estate Planning" categories than it is to Family Law, where the question was originally posted. You could repost under those categories. Some questions do go unanswered on this forum, but it could be worth a try to repost. Attorneys in those categories would have the most insight into wills, trusts, and related instruments. Good luck
