ok I spell that wrong divorce is the word, and it's my wife that sign some paper at the Police station, claiming we are not living together, due to I have been unfaithful with a woman I don't know, or even don't know if she exsist. We have been married for 10 years, and all this happen in less than 24 hour. She send me a mail and reduce me to a low life individ.
So I have a question, can my wife sell half of our land in the country during the time it take to be divorced?
The land is under my name!
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

< NO EMAIL > Hybrid, I can't believe you actually asked that question. Do you own a tv? Can you read? Do you live alone under a rock?

Any kids?
If not she can only drag you down a couple rings of hell.
I believe only you can sell what is in your name.
But she can sue for divorce, alimenticia, etc.
Yep, get a GOOD lawyer.

We do handle divorces between foreigners and Chileans, and just foreigners.

Your wife, unless there is more to the story, can generally not sell a property in your name. In fact, you may not be able to sell your property without your wife's consent. Totally depends under what marriage regime you were married under in Chile, and a bunch of other factors.

The good news, or the bad news, is there is really no such thing as a quick divorce in Chile. It is a 1-3 year process in most situations. There is also none of this situation where one spouse walks away with everything that the other spouse has earned. There is alimony perhaps, but it is fairly limited in scope, typically for a set time.

This is all just very generalized. Every situation is different. Send us an email next week ( https://www.spencerglobal.com/contact-us.html ), and we can schedule a conference call if you like.

Because of a story I was told many years ago my first question would be, How did she find out about this? Was it a phone call, by chance?

Yes it was by a phone call!

But the strange thing is it is one of the neighbor out here in the campo, and I don't know who he is.
What I know is none of my neighbor out here have her new TLF number. They don't have her really name and her rut.

I'm a little worried, as she yesterday also pick up the shotgun and the ammunition, let say I was a little pissed of confronted with this, and not thinking of her behavior. I'm now thinking this maybe is some psychological issue.
The last year have been extremely hard for her, full time study, and fulltime job, she get fired from the job.
She have a son that's not easy 25 year, with a bunch of acidhead as friend, and expensive to keep up running.
If she is on a way to mental breakdown, I will not blame her for what she say or do, then my duty is to take care of her and not push her away.

Well the 6 of January she finnish teacher studies, the last exam verbal, her average mark was 6,4 we was going to celebrate this, but after few day without nothing to do she totally change, and suddenly I was having an extra woman.

The mail she write to me was really nasty, so I get angry instead of thinking, and now I'm trying to get contact with her brother, so he can get away the shotgun and the ammunition
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

OK. Let me share the story I mentioned the best I can remember it.

A couple in Santiago received a call late one evening. The wife (let call her Mary) answered the call; a woman on the other side started telling her that her (Mary's) husband is having an affair with another woman and that is the reason that he is not home. Hearing that, Mary tells her that it is not true, as her husband is home. The other woman replied that she was lying, so Mary said 'Would you like to talk to him?', and gave her husband the phone. When the husband took the phone the other woman started telling him that if he didn't give her money she would tell the wife that he had a child with her, etc , etc.

What I got from the story is that there are some very mean people that enjoy hurting and harming others, and this could well be the case in the problems you are having.

I asked her about visit this girl, so we could clear it up, but she refuse to give me the name
As she is giving description of the girl, I guess they have meet.
So where am I going to run?
