Customer Question
I was wondering if...

I was wondering if you guys deal with probate lawyers and cases outside of the US for example Mexico if I live in the US

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a Mexican lawyer about this?

NO No My dad passed in Mexico and we live in California, and now his girlfriend isn't allowing us to get his ashes or any belonging so I would like to know what my options are

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

My uncle flew to Mexico to get everything and she ignored calls etc. They were never married He only lived there for 3 years

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I just would like to know if i have a case here and what i need to do in order to get my dads ashes and belongings back to the United States

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

We cannot represent anyone from this site. You would need an attorney in Mexico, since that is where he died and you can get one from the same site used by other attorneys http://www.hg.org
