Thanks, I hadn't even thought of legal implications but I suppose they should be made legal guardians while I was out of the country. Certainly, it would not be illegal, would it?

What's wrong with Paraguay? They seem to have favorable tax laws, lost cost of living, a similar culture to Argentina's (which I like), and lots of space.

Well, Paraguay is the far west.

Same language and religion is not the same culture.

Is there a legal problem?

Could you elaborate on some of the differences? Much appreciated. A Paraguayan once told me that he considers Brasileros similar to Americans and Argentinos similar to Europeans. I heard Paraguay has more Native American roots, i.e. Guarani. That seems rather interesting.

I'm a single parent in my 30s and would like to live in Argentina with my kids. My business will continue to run a few more years and provide income but probably I will soon be solely relying on passive earnings from investments mainly in Asia. My total assets are currently about 2 million USD. .

What would the total expected annual budget be for a simple but secure lifestyle in a not too expensive area?

Here are two threads which I believe you will find informative:

Is $2 Million Usd Enough To Retire With In Argentina?

$1 Million Usd To Spend In Bsas - How Long Can It Last?

If my hunch is correct, you are already familiar with their content. Posted Image

Thanks for the input. What do you think a reasonable monthly amount would be? I am assuming no housing costs as I would buy a place. I have 3 children so it would be for 4 people.

I've spent some time in Concepcion (northern Paraguay) with a German/Paraguay family and they wouldn't educate their kids in public schools.  They go to great lengths to pay private school fees, and they are not rich people by any standards.
