My husbands family home. I was under the impression my husband and i were buying his grandma house from uncle and dad. Turns out his dad and him own it. I signed but one paper and it was interspousal transfer deed. I just had a baby who i was feeding when told to sign. I tried reading g and saw married man solo property. The Notre said don't worry if you divorce you'll still something. I was confused but had to attend baby. I am also bipolar not on meds due to breastfeeding. I waited 3 yrs before telling husband that I think I signed rights away. I have no one, my husband family did this and i don't know why. I don't understand nor want this anymore on file. I feel like my father-in-law had intentions and I was blindsided. My husband and I are considering divorce and I have nobody and nothing. I think I was wrong today need to know what I can do. We were married at the time of this and we have four kids I just want to make sure is there taking care of.

Mr. Shields is correct; your attorney may file a petition to set aside the deed you signed.
Spouses are free to enter into transactions amongst themselves during the marriage. However, there is a duty of good-faith and fair dealing. When a transaction unfairly advantages one spouse a presumption of undue influence arises. If the other party is not able to rebut the presumption of undue influence, the transaction will be set aside.
I am unclear as to a number of details. However, if you and your husband used community funds to purchase real property during the marriage, and he had you sign a document taking your name off the property, then he would have gained an advantage in the transaction, to your and the community estate's detriment. The presumption of undue influence would apply, and the burden would be on the other party to rebut it.
This is a complicated issue, and you should consult with an attorney in your area.
