Im Going To Argentina In One Month For A Few Months And I Need Legal Advice?
I'M A 19 Year Old American Woman Who Is Going To Argentina For The First Time In Exactly One Month. I Need Legal Advice And Just Specific Information That Will Help Me...Survive For Over A Month. I'M Going With A Spanish Immersion Program And Staying In An Apartment. This Is My First Real Time Out Of The Country, I'M Traveling By Myself So I Want To Know Everything.
Is There Someone I Can Talk To Or Someone That Can Help Me Out With This Stuff? Like To Talk To Over Skype Or The Phone??
My Main Questions:
What The 'Forigner Free&Quot; I Know You Have To Pay To Leave The Country...
Do I Need A Visa?
Do I Need Converters For The Oulets Down There?
How Will I Have Access To My Bank? Will I Need Another Debit Card?
Where Is The American Embassy And How Can They Serve Me? Etc
Is There A Webiste That Can Help? But I Would Really Like To Talk To Someone. Thank You!
Why are you so afraid to come to Argentina? If you think you´ll only "survive" maybe you aren´t ready to travel alone... It is a civilized country, yes it has some dangers, but everywhere there´s danger. Or is the USA totally crime free? And doesn´t your spanish group provide you some assistance?
Well I´ll try to ease some of your fears...
When you leave Buenos Aires at the Ezeiza Airport you will have to pay a TAX, it´s not a "foreigner free" anything, don´t worry! It´s about 100 dollars if I´m not mistaken, but it´s been a while since I went through. And everybody has to pay it, including locals.
About visas, depends on your nationality. As an american you don´t need a visa, but you can only stay inside the country for 90 days. If you want to stay longer or work, you need a visa.
Electricity is 220 v, whereas in the USa electricity is 110 v. Therefore you need transformers (you can´t plug in the appliances directly or they will burn down!). I advice you if you intend to bring a hairdrier or such, don´t. Buy a cheap one (they´ll cost you about 30 dollars) in buenos Aires. I once took a curling iron, and despite having a transformer, it burned through. Also the outlets are different, so you´d need an adaptor as well. Now if you need to charge a laptop, you´re in luck because most laptop and cellular chargers admit electricity from 110 to 220 v - but if in doubt, go to Best Buy and ASK ok? In that case, You´ll only need an adaptor (go to a hardware store and ask for an adaptor with 3 flats).
Access to your Bank: this is something you have to clear with the Bank in the USA. For instance, Citibank has branches in Buenos Aires and they will let you take out money from an ATM with your US debit card, but they´ll charge you an extra fee. Be sure to clear this, as this fee can be hefty. Otherwise, if you have a credit card, you can use some ATMs like Maestro for Mastercard. Go to your Bank and ask them what kind of ATMs you can use in Argentina. And you can also buy some traveler´s checks: they are like a check, but have a double signature: you sign them when you buy them and then again just before you exchange them at any Bank. You´ll have a fee for exchanging them, but if they get stolen no one can use them and American express (who issues these traveler´s checks) will reimburse you, so you don´t lose the money! It´s a smarter way of carrying "almost" cash with you. You can use them directly in many stores, or you can change them for the cash at any Bank.
American Embassy: you´ll have to google this one. Come on, do some work yourself! Google: "American Embassy Buenos Aires". They are located in Palermo, in a beautiful neighborhood, and they can help you if you lose your passport, or get robbed, or need legal help (like if you are caught with drugs or doing something illegal). It´s like any embassy from any country anywhere in the world: the purpose is to represent its country, but also to help their citizens if they get in trouble far away from home.

Don´t be afraid, relax, have fun and enjoy your stay! Don´t come if you are feeling like a scapegoat sent to be killed... But it´s such a beautiful country it´s a pity if you choose to pass.
What Do You Do If You'Re Not Poor Enough For Legal Aid Services And Not Wealthy Enough For A...?
Having Access To An Attorney, I Believe, Is A Necessity Not A Luxury. Does This Mean There'S No Justice For The Middle Class?
The courts will provide you a public defender if you don't have the income to provide an attorney for youself. I believe there is some qualifying step and an imperfect system but still probably the best around.
I do notice that many of the lawyers that act as public defenders put on some half-assed kind of defense though... off the cuff... little preparation... and really just a credible attempt at a weak defense. All different though. Prosecutors are like pit bulls though! Without exception.
I watched one the other day defending a guy who broke into a contruction site (cut the lock off the garage door) stole a large power drill and sold it to a Pawn Shop. They got a copy of his driver's license (required in VA to do such a transaction). His defender was saying it wasn't him... someone had apparently faked his license and presented it to "frame him". Didn't pass the judges "reasonable man test" but when the Pawn Shop owner took the stand to point him out and say, "Yep... that's the guy... I recognize him... and the license matched his face..." They scrambled for another ridiculous story... he then said he found it... (a new story).
Public defenders are for folks that want to go to jail... or the poor... if you are middle class or rich you can buy a degree of "justice". That may be true to some degree or another but can you design a better system?
Can You Tell Me Where I Can Obtain A Directory/ List Of All Private Attorneys Throughout The State Of Cali?
I Am Looking For An Up To Date Book/Directory Of All The Prvt. Practicing Attorneys In Ca. - Where Can I Get It?
There is a book published every year by the State Bar--"Directory of Attorneys." However, it lists them alphabetically and only divides the state into Northern and Southern, so I don't think it would be very helpful. Your best bet is to contact a local bar association or a legal services firm--there are lots out there. You could go to a library/bookstore and look for the nespaper the "Daily Journal"--it a respected legal paper--it has lots of ads and I think it has a brief directory divided up by practice area. Or ask your family/friends. Referrals are always good. And don't forget--your first consultaion is typically free. I'm not sure what kind of legal issue you have, but it's important to have a good rapport with your lawyer. Also, look to see how professional/efficient his staff is--they're the ones you'll be dealing with. The staff is usually more hands on in smaller firms. Smaller firms are also cheaper (typically), but have less resources. If you have any other questions, you can email me.
How Do California Probate Laws Affect A Life Insurance Policy?
...To Be More Specific, If A Parent Purchased Their Child A Life Insurance Policy In 1984 And Left The 2Nd Ownership Blank Because (At The Time Of Its Creation And Purchase) It Would Mean The Insured Would Automatically Become Owner If The Original Owner Passes Away, Do California Probate Laws That Came Into Effect (10+ Yrs Later After The Policy Purchase) Affect It (Like If 2Nd Ownership Is Left Blank, The Spouse Automatically Gets It, Not The Insured) Or Are The Original Standards Of The Policy'S Purchase From 1984 Still Followed?
I Think I Made This Question A Little Confusing. Hopefully Someone Understands, And Can Answer. I Appreciate Your Time In Reading And More So If You Answer!!! ≪3
Insurance Pickle is right. Some policies transfer automatically to the insured at a certain age. That has nothing to do with probate law. It is part of the insurance policy.
And, IF the owner passed away and you automatically become owner you have full rights to the policy including any cash in the policy and the right to change the beneficiary.
When there is no second owner listed the spouse does NOT become owner Then the owner becomes the owners estate. Then a court has to decide who becomes owner. Ownership does NOT go to the spouse unless the court orders it. Ownership would go to the current owners estate.
Then the policy may go to probate to decide who owns the policy.
You really need to speak to the life insurance company for the right information. Different policies work different ways. No one here would know your answer without looking at the policy. Call the insurance company or contact the Department of Insurance in your state for help. You might have to scroll down to find your state.
Bottom line: Either you automatically become owner or the current owner's estate does, NOT the spouse.
I Am Just Wanting To Know What Criminal Law Is And What The Schooling Is
When you do something that gets you in trouble with the police, that's "criminal law."
Basically, your government has laws meant to protect the citizens from certain acts against them. If you break one of these laws, not only are you hurting that person you committed a crime against, you're also considered to have hurt society in general. So, society punishes you (through jail, or whatever).
To get in that field, there are many options. You can be police officers, work for the court as an investigator, probation officer, etc. Lawyers and judges are a popular goal to become for people. To be a lawyer, you have to graduate with a bachelors and then go on to law school.
