Greetings. I think that your father may simply not be understanding what his attorney is saying. Your father needs to file an Equitable Distribution action and request that the house be transfered to him. He needs a good attorney that he can trust. At a minimum, he can call our office and set up a phone consultation so that he can be sure he understands his rights and all steps that he needs to take. Thank you.
P.S. Your father is lucky that he has such a loving child. Thank you.
