Adding a second person to the title as joint tenants with the right of survivorship
I would like to know what form(s) to use and how to record the change. Thank you

Changing the title of real estate from one person to multiple owners is pretty straight forward, most of the time a quitclaim is used. The issue we have here in Florida is the transfer tax which is due on almost all transactions, even when the effect is just adding someone to title.

I am a widow and I would like to add my 2 children to my deed so there is no problem when I die.

Can this be done from long distance? I have POA over my mother's affairs & want to add my name to the deed.

Yes, you can complete a deed where you are and arrange for it to be delivered for recording once you have executed it.

My mom passed away in 2015. My name was on the deed at that time, but my wife's name wasn't. I'd like to have her name added to the deed. The condo I'm referring to is located at 125 Lake Nancy Dr #143, West Palm Beach, Fl 33411. My wife and I reside at 2710 Summers Ridge Dr, Odenton,Maryland 21113. Can you please direct us as how to proceed. Thank you
