My question involves real estate located in the State of: Michigan
A couple decides to purchase a home in Michigan, a dower state. The husband says there is no need for the wife to have her name on the deed conveying the property because of the state's dower law. Is the husband correct or should the wife have her name on the deed to fully protect her rights and to reflect joint ownership of the property?
And what does 1/3 mean in the dower law...shouldn't it be all of it?
