I'm not dividing land, I'm just giving my son / daughter a piece of what I have. Is giving the same as dividing?

Any time you take one parcel of land and make it into more than one, you are considered to be dividing land. When dividing land, a licensed land surveyor must be contacted in order to create a plat of the new boundary lines.
