A client walks into your office in a major panic! She just got off the phone with the bank… who just told her she doesn’t own her own home. They have a deed that transfers the property out of her possession – that’s now owned 100% by her ex-husband – and it’s even been recorded by the county recorder. How can you possibly help this client?
