Dower Rights,  would you like to give up your claim to Dower Rights?  Some states like Michigan have Dower Rights others have Curtsy rights and some have both. This week I had an agent make a unique request.  The agent wanted a release form for Dower Rights.  I said are you sure you want that form?  Why would a woman give up her legal claim as in half (50%) ownership in anything?
