When a dower release is signed, are all rights in the house gone?

Question by overworked/underpaid mom: When a dower release is signed, are all rights in the house gone?
My parents quitclaimed their house to me 9 years ago (I had been married less than 1 year). When I refinanced the mortgage my husband signed a dower release. Now that it’s time for divorce hasn’t he already given up all rights to this house or will we be fighting over it?

Depends on the terms of the release, and maybe some othe things. Your really should contact your lawyer about this issue; you’re not likely to get good legal advice in this forum.
