My question involves real estate located in the State of: Washington
This is a question for my mother who is getting divorced. She and her husband invested in a piece of property in Washington (though they live in California), when they purchased the property, my mother had a poor credit score and to insure that they would be approved for the loan she signed a quit claim deed over to her husband (at least that is why she thought she signed it).
Over the course of their 8 year marriage both have supported the other financially when the other has not been adequately employed. The property payment was always made by her husband, though my mother payed all the other bills at times.
So my question is whether or not my mother has any rights to the property which has appreciated by about 300% since they purchased it?
