A lawyer is holding my original deed since I did not probate my husbands will. I have my own will that will be the primary when I die. Can he do this......Hold my deed?
If he is holding your original deed and the deed he is holding has been recorded, then go to the County Clerk and get a certified copy of that deed and now you have the equivalent of the original deed so there is nothing then for you to continue to fight for as to the deed issue.
And if your husband's will requires probating take his original will to another probate attorney who is interested in probating it if she or he determines there to be a need to probate his will.See question

At least in New York, an Order/Judgment that entitles you the house only "entitles" you to the house, it does not cause title to the house to be vested in you so as to allow for you show ownership. To "round the bases" , if you get no co-operation in gaining actual title to the house you will have to endeavour to enforce the Order/Judgment, under the cloud of sanctions for your ex-husband's failure to co-operate in conveying his interest in the house to you.See question

You are not legally required to have an attorney represent you in connection with a real estate purchase transaction. Provided however that you are confident that you possess the acumen necessary to fully understand what you are getting yourself into, at your own risk and peril, noting that a seller's attorney has no obligation to you whatsoever.See question
