My husband signed a quit claim deed to put the house into trust. Does he get half the interest in the property in the event of divorce?

The trust attorney says "no" but the divorce attorney says "yes."

Signing a quit claim deed relinquishes all interest in the property being deeded, so the house is the property of the trust. The terms of the trust would determine if your husband is entitled to any interest in the house. The trust attorney knows the terms of the trust agreement, if he says "no" it's likely he is right.
