    My father who passed away was a resident of Puerto Rico. He did have a will made about 8 years before he passed away. My question is do we still have to do a Declaration of Heirs. We are three sisters living stateside. Two attorneys have told us that we have to do a declaration of heirs. I’m confused, because my understanding from searching on the internet is that ONLY if there is no WILL then you have to proceed with doing a Declaration of heirs.
    Thank you,

      Thank you for your question. If the will was NOT done in Puerto Rico or for whatever reason does not comply with Puerto Rico Law you are likely to need a declaration of heirs in Puerto Rico. Has anyone taken a look at the will?

    I purchased a house in Ensenada two and a half years ago, how long does it take to get the original registered deed back. I have asked my lawyer a few times and she tells me it takes a long time.

      Thank you for your question. Recently, the Registry upgraded it systems and the deeds are being registered much faster. Nevertheless, it has been “normal” that it takes a long time for deeds to be recorded. Just stay in communication with your lawyer, and you may also check yourself with the Registry.
