What can you tell me about Will's and Testament's

Post by vamoschile » Tue Oct 29, 2019 4:00 pm

All,

Can you help me understand how the Will and Testament process works in Chile. What should it cost to have a lawyer do a simple Will and Testament?

Thanks

Let me give a little more details. My mother-in-law is Chilean and is starting some medical treatment and she is curious how long it would take to set up a small will and testament. She has a house, some savings and a few material items. Nothing to complex I would imagine. She has two kids that would be in the will and testament. Is there anything you can caution us about before we go down this process? I have no experience in the USA with wills and testaments and I was curious if the USA and Chile have a similar process for both creation and then executing on them after a person has passed on.

way too specific to your situation and involved for a forum discussion.

you may not even need a will. the default inheritance laws may take care of everything; but that needs to be looked at in detail.

do you need a will in chile or the u.s. ?

If it is the u.s., you need to contact an attorney in the united states.

Gloria is no longer a member of this forum.

She was warned repeatedly.

Three things:
1- Contact the admin for Chilean legal issues.
2- Chilean laws concerning inheritance are different than USA laws.
3- Contact the admin.
