Is our will valid in Costa Rica

Recommended Posts

nansie you need to go to a lawyer here and have legal papers written up that will allow access to your S.A., if you have one, as unless they are noted on your corporation, they cannot get access to it or anything that is 'in' there, such as car, home etc.

Make sure you chose wisely.

we were advised to have legal papers (will, trust, etc) in Costa Rica for our assets in CR, and to keep our will in the USA for assets there.

at this moment, our only real CR asset is the bank account (BN), which had a beneficiary set up as part of opening the account.

Hola, I wanted to know if our will(trust) is valid here in Costa Rica.

We are not residence yet.

Thanks so much, Nansie

Be advised that a separate registry exists for wills (similar to the registry for vehicles/property).

We brought copies of our wills, trust documents, etc. Our only 'assets' here are the things we brought, and our bank account. IF we buy a car or other real property, then we will do a SA.

Dana, if something happens to both of you and there is no other 'persons' in your SA, and unless you have something drawn up legally, it cannot be accessed by your next of kin, unless specially named.

BTW, do you know that if you have a phone line in your own name, it can/should be deeded to your spouse.... :lol:
