Your daughter's interest will depend on the divorce laws in the State of Rhode Island. You are a one-half owner of the property.

If your daughter has not already retained an attorney, I would recommend she do so. Before you change the title to the property you should inform her attorney of all pertinent facts.

I have changed the practice area to family law. This may assist you with getting more helpful suggestions.

This answer does not, nor is it intended to, create an attorney-client relationship or constitute attorney advertising. Rather, it is offered solely for information purposes. Since the facts of each case are different, it is critical to consult with qualified counsel with whom information can be shared and assessed under an attorney-client privilege, so that competent advice can be obtained on which you can make informed decisions.
