We own property in India. One a US citizen and the other a Permanent Resident going through a divorce. How can the US citizen relinquish interest in the property to the spouse? Are Quit Claim Deeds valid in India?
You are asking attorneys in the United States a question regarding the law in India. I do not believe that you will find anyone on AVVO that can give you a correct answer to your question. Quit claim deeds are valid in the United States, but whether it will be honored by a court in India is a question only an attorney in India would know the answer to.
I agree with my colleague's answer. A valid quit claim deed will be honored in the United States, however you will need to check with an attorney in India as to whether or not the quit claim deed is valid in India.
