Special Time


Homesteads created between December 5, 1977 and October 18, 1978 can be released as to the rights of unmarried minor children[1] only if such authority was reserved in the original declaration. As to homesteads declared after October 18, 1978 through August 30, 1979 a release of the rights of unmarried minor children can be effected, if the release so states, even though the right to make such a release was not reserved in the declaration. 

1 This can include later-born children as well.
