Wife and I were seperated but not divorced, she has passed away, I previously signed off the property through an attorney, but my name remains on the deed. Taxes were due and I paid them. I should have checked first to see if the property is now legally mine. We have a daughter and she had a son to a previous marriage, if it is mine do I just go and have it put into their names?

Re: Joint realestate
If the prior attorney did not prepare a deed to reflect the transfer to your wife, then that lawyer or a new lawyer can draft an appropriate deed transferring title to your daughter and stepson.
Good luck to you.
