  1. having liability insurance only protects you for the limits of the policy. If you are sued for more, you are still liable for the difference
  2. MaymI be so bold as to, ask why not?
  3. Just found out that representatives from TRICARE are to visit Panama this month to conference with various hospitals, doctors etc. in Central America. Maybe it would be possible for this meeting to restore the lost TRICARE for life benefits that were lost about ten years ago here in Costa Rica? Everyone should remember that a meeting occurred at the US embassy, and that an answer was forthcoming as to the refusal to pay the hospitals by TRICARE! Of course no answer was ever given! This action was to the detriment of several vets under TRICARE! Every attempt should be made by for someone with the capability and funds to attend this meeting, and bring this situation to a reasonable solution.

    is charles zeller still in business?
  7. in Costa Rica, a married couple own property separately. at the termination of a marriage (and the death of one of the spouses is a termination of a marriage), all propery owned by the parties to the marriage becomes "community property". if the spouse that died did not leave a will, at that point all community property goes to probate. In Costa Rica this is a very expensive and long process (years)......
  8. tried to get to amcostarica this morning, came up with window stating that bandwidth exceeded. when I came here 15 years ago, the country was supposed to be tied frontier to frontier with fiber optic communiction. this window stating bandwdth exceeded is another indication that after 15 years the instalation of fiber optic has not been completed. the other indication is the low speed of the internet!
  9. any one know the status of aerocasillas? are they still accepting mail in Miami for customeers in Costa Rica? what i going on with them?
  10. yep, I had the same problem in January Have the ARCR office verify that your renewal is in migracion / they were backed upfor 2 to 3 months......
  11. whats going on here. cant get flu shots. govt. recently decreed that need a doctor to sell flu vaccine, but it seems no one has any......
  12. To all those living in, visiting, moving to, or contemplating a domicile in Costa Rica, do not under ANY circumstances become involved in a property dispute in Costa Rica. You are looking at 15 to 20 years in court, endless aggravation, and in the end will not prevail!

    Wages owed for work finished

    don't ever resign a job in Costa Rica - if you are fired, you get severance pay etc. - if you resign, you're on your own! - reference Garland Baker at AM Costa Rica.com for more info.
  14. the problem is, when your cedula is expired, can't get a drivers licwense, or get your money out of a Tico bank. Also, if you have an accident while driving with an expired license, insurance doesn't have to pay. Illegal use of a vehicle. Any way you cut it, one can not, nor should they take something like this lightly.................
  15. Please see La Nacioin of today, page 9A, - Contraloria critica manejo de solicitudes de residencia" - among other things, it says that 8500 requests for residencies remain in the open file for processing, and it is taking up to 10 years for a file to be processed...... I remain eager for an open discusssion to occur on these forums, concerning migracion.
