Depending on where the property is located, I would instead first try contacting a title company, which could probably handle the transfer with proper documentation, and thereby attempt to avoid having to use an attorney (which might not be necessary, and might well be more expensive).

The mechanics of adding someone to the deed of your home are easily attainable; however, the decision to do so should be weighed in terms of advantages and disadvantages. If your spouse owns a business, or is heavily indebted, placing him\her on the deed may have deleterious ramifications; i.e, such as business incurred liens could be placed on personal assets, possibly resulting in having to declare bankruptcy to protect your home from being liquidated. If your spouse is cavalier in business, or credit matters, it may not be a good idea to add them to your deed. Also, note that depending on what state you live in, the home, while having your name on the deed, may be considered common property. Please consult an attorney, of course.

Lastly, make sure you and your spouse are well informed about the above mentioned, and most of all manage your affairs with a level of mutual integrity, respect, and competency, respectively! Then handle your business accordingly. Best wishes!
