Just to let my fellow RX'ers here...NO one needs a lawyer to get their residency!!! If anyone needs any help on how to get it PM me and i'll walk you thru it. I got mine without a lawyer and it took a total of 3 hours of my time. Using a lawyer is a complete waste of your time and money. This is the biggest scam by lawyers in this country. A lawyer can do nothing for you in the residency process that you cannot do yourself.

i've had 4 lawyers in costa rica and everyone of them was a thief. if possible, never pay before a job is done,
and be clear on the fee--put it in writing. still you will have problems. for example just getting updates
from an attorney, or progress reports is torture. costa rica lawyers don't believe in keeping their clients
up to date/informed of whatever project they're working on. what i wouldn't have given to find one
reputable, honest lawyer in this country.

my lawyer fucked me and filed my marriage license four months late, he called my wife one day telling her there was still time to get out of it if she wanted but he would be filing it soon.

second rule of CR living, right after "#1 Never trust a lawyer". #2 never trust an inlaw down here, especially if he/she is a lawyer. He is her sister's brother-in-law, I guess he just wanted to marry into the same family as his brother.

Anybody ever hear of a law, that a sibling of a resident is eligible for residency?

Current Law 8764 is very cloudy regarding immigration benefits available to siblings.

Article 68 subheading 1 states that first degree relatives of citizens are eligible for permanent residence; specifically spouse, children, parents, and unmarried siblings. But subheading 2 explains that first degree relatives of residents are also eligible for permanent residence but are limited to spouse, children, and parents.

Then Article 78 defines first degree or "blood" relatives of foreign residents: spouse, parents, minor children, adult children who are disabled, minor siblings, or adult siblings who are disabled.

Hopefully the upcoming rules clarify this and other obfuscations once they are fit to be published in La Gaceta.

In the meantime, the new Special Immigration Police and Border Patrol are increasing their presence along the border with Nicaragua. On July 6th, Diario La Prensa in Managua reported that 287 Nicas had been nabbed by Tico authorities in just five days. Operations are not limited to the northern border; more than a dozen Nicaraguan pineapple farm workers were picked up in Río Cuarto de Grecia.

When I said above that it was easy to get your residency one would have to meet the requirements. Easiest way is to have a child here. Second would be marrying a Tica....

I have no magical secrets to getting residency or any shortcuts to getting it.So dont bother pming me thinking I have some secret hookup because I dont. If you go to the consulate website follow the steps its pretty straightforward.

How does having a child here make it easier? I thought you still had to jump through ALL of the hoops even if you had a kid here? Please correct me if I am wrong.

That’s a bullet straight to your head. You will have to leave certain amount of money and sign up a bunch of shit saying you won’t forget your child and her mommy if you eventually want to get out of the country. Plus you still gotta do all paper work required for residency. That’s what I heard from a friend of mine who screw it up. :ohno:
