Quick Claim Deed
My husband and I own our home.
He is in our county jail. We
have both agreed to quick claim
our house to our daughter. How
can we do that? Does a lawyer
go to the jail?

A quitclaim deed will release your and your husband's entire right, title, and interest in the property to your daughter.
You don't need an attorney. The quitclaim deed is signed in the presence of a notary. A notary would go to the jail, but you will have to contact the jail to inquire if that is allowed.
After being signed in the presence of a notary, the quitclaim deed becomes effective upon being recorded (filed with the County Recorder's office).

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
