Customer Question
I have an apartment...

I have an apartment in Nice, I am leaving in ten days to go there and sell my apartment. It is both in my husband's and my name, however my husband cannot travel with me due to serious illness, can you help me get a legal power of attorney to take to the notary there, he can sign any document necessary, thanks alice Minassian

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I'm in Los angeles California

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

Last year I had a lady translator who got a document signed by him and then she took it to the LA French Consulate, however when I took it to the Notary in Nice she didn't accept it saying that it should be a special form which the consulate provides. It is very hard to get in touch with them.

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

If the lawyer has the necessary document it will be very simple. How much will be the charge for this transaction.
