Q. My dad passed away. But my mom is alive. She would like to transfer deed to her daughter. How does she go about doing it
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. Your Mom has to do a donations contract in Puerto Rico inorder to Donate her half of the Property to her daughter. The other half belongs to your father's estate (inheritors). You need to hire an Attorney in Puerto Rico to do the lnheritance and the donation process. Feel free to contact me if you have further questions on this or any other legal matter.
Q. I have a friend who lives in Puerto Rico. She is married but her husband has separated from the home.
A: Hello and thank you for using Justia. She can travel for visitation purposes. If the husband denies her, she should file for divorce. I would just purchase the tickets and leave if her intent is to return to Puerto Rico. If not she can go to the court and get judicial authorization to travel.
Q. My grandmother died in 1991 in Puerto Rico. I had a title search done and they could not find her title.
A: Hello and thank you for using Justia. This sounds very odd that CRIM would have the property accessed without the property being registered. You will need to search all records of past owners of said property to find out what went wrong with your Grandmother's registry of property.
Q. Does the father of baby have to pay support during pregnancy?
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. The civil code doesnot provide for this. Thus There being no laws related to this matter, the father is not obligated to pay support unless he admites that the fetus is his in which case the Court can fix a support payment. You need to prove that the fetus is his.
Q. My husband is buying a property in Puerto Rico which he will put under an established Real Estate LLC which he owns.
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. An LLC corporación is one which does not have stock holders but rather administrators of the corporation. If the purchase is made with money from the marital community then the marital community is the administrator of the LLC and you would be administrator of 50% of the percentage of your husband in the LLC. A wife is not an inheritor unless the deceased husband has no living children or parents. Thus in answer to your question if your husband at his time of death has surviving children or parents they are the inheritors of your husband's share. You as part of the marital society are the co-administrator of the LLC and thus would reciente 50% of the value of your husband's administrative percentage in the LLC.
Q. I want to divorce my husband and get custody of my kids, and Social services will not help what do I need to do?
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. Your best move is to speak with your superiores to established you being assigned and deployed at one military base for a set time span that you can take your children with you. The custody in normally always given to the mother. It would be a good to have your children registered in a School of your choice and have housing set up for all of you in the área where you will be deployed. Set up a plan of custody and child care when you are at work. Also set up a visitation schedual for the father to spend time with his children. Once this has been done, the speak with an Attorney to file the divorce and petition of custody. If this cannot be done then you should consider split custody. This Will allow you to be involved in the children's life and educativo.
Q. Does Puerto Rico have a "Small Estate Affidavit" or equivalent legal document?
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. Puerto Rico does not have a Small Estate process. The only way to liquidated assets of the deceased is by probate through the Court. This is done by filing a petition with the Court. The first step is to get a certified copy of the Will through the ODIN Office. They are whom has the original document registered. The second step is to file the petition with the original Will in the Court. The Court Will validate the Will and give it authourization. The third step is to file an lnheritance tax return with Hacienda (local Tax Office). They will issue a tax release. The fourth step is to take all three documents ( the Will, Court authorization and the Tax Department release) to a Notary Public to create a sworn affidavit (Instancia) explaining the process and requesting the liquidation of the estate. The final process is to send all these documents to Wells Fargo for issuing payment. The average cost of the entire process is around $ 1,000.00.
Q. The father ir my son lives in Orlando,FL and I have full custody of my son can I use Child Support?
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. You have the social security number of the father thus ASUME should be able to get you his Tax refund sent to you each year. You can also file a petition against the paternal Grand parents for payments of child support since the father is not paying. Another thing you can do is have ASUME issue a request of an arrest warrent against the father for not paying child support.
Q. Why do you I have to pay so much Childsuport if my daughter does not live with her mother and has a baby
A: Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. The question should be "Why is a 16 year old minor living with a male of 27 years of age when this constitutes sexual abuse of a minor, child abuse and possible statutory rape if sexual relations were done prior to her 16th birthday." The child support payment is for the child and not the mother thus you will need to open an account in your daughter's name, deposit the child support in said account and file a motion with the Court informing them of this change of residence and payment. This will avoid the mother from getting the money as well as protect you from defaulting on your legal obligation to comply with the Court order to pay child support. The only way to eliminate said obligation to pay child support is by getting the Court to eliminate said obligation. This can be done by you requesting custody of your daughter since the mother has allowed your daughter to live with an adult in violatión of child safety laws. Another possibility is for your daughter to get married with her parent's consent and then request the Court to eliminate the child support obligation. Your obligation to pay child support continues until your daughter turns 21 and a Court eliminates said obligation. It's not automátically eliminated. The Court must order the elimination or your obligation to pay child support continues. Please contract legal services for this matter.
