I posted a POA question earlier, and got some great replies, so here goes again.
Helping my mom get together documents she will need in Chile to claim her share of her father's inheritance.
My father has passed away, and I have gotten the death certificate and the Apostille for it.
My aunt now tells me I also need to find the marriage certificate because widows are not allowed
to claim any money or open bank accounts without it? She said the bank will demand it.
Is this true?
Also do I need to get all the documents certified at the Chilean embassy also before we go to Chile?
Most legacy restrictions in the older regimes related to women's rights to own and control property without their husband authorization have been eliminated by other laws, and there is a debate in congress to convert all marriages to total seperation of assets regime or one of the more modern marriage regimes.
