    A Cheaper Way To Get To Ezeiza From Palermo?

    The last time I used MTL (2011), pickup from home address (in my case Palermo) by remis was included provided if you made the reservation 24hs before the bus departure.

    Residency after marriage

    Sorry about being unclear, and the legalization part is probably irrelevant. We did an earlier translation of the Argentine marriage certificate _from_ Spanish in order to use it abroad, and the certificate + translation then went to what my translator described as "legalization" here. They...

    Residency after marriage

    @Debora: 1. I have a argentine wife plus kids, one born here. Yesterday, the Migraciones guys (whatever happened to Argentine bureaucracy! Young, friendly and dynamic guys in their mid-20-to-30s!) didn't even look at the kid's birth certificate or DNI. The Argentine marriage certificate was all...

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    There's a timing aspect here. It would probably be faster and cheaper to bump the real estate over to next-of-kin, for instance. We'll have to see if it would be possible to complete the transaction and transferring the funds out of the country before a lien would take effect. Of course, the...

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    That's actually what I've been working on. But what would be the disadvantage of transferring to anyone with the same family name? Is there a grey zone here in which som types of transfers could be cancelled by a court?

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    Well, the letters have been official enough that Tribunales is preparing the expediente these days. It will be interesting to see if the judge slaps a lien on my property or not.

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    Yes, I'm counting with a lien, so in this sense it is a race against the clock. The more I look into the ridiculously low number of work hours the lady did, the more I am convinced that their gamble is that I will be scared enough to settle. Somehow I think that about 80 hours worked (by her...

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    No doubt. She seems to be at a slight disadvantage in this respect though, as she was only cleaning on-demand, and I have her emails she sent me with her hours. Cleaning comes down to a maximum of 20 workdays in 2008. Muddying the picture somewhat is my stupid agreement to a hefty...

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    1. The property 2. Nope 3. Need to check on that one! The thing is that the lady has her own remise company who also were in charge of getting my visitors to and from EZE. Her tasks expanded from there, so it didn't occur to me that I should have separated the functions she was performing. But...

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    Greetings friends.. I was a little unclear about the nature of the "administrative work" she was doing. It was just related to taking care of the place while I was away-- keeping keys to the apartment and letting visitors in, paying some bills, etc.

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for the feedback and advice so far; I will get in touch with those of you who have offered me to do so at a more civilized hour... The ironic thing is that I have constantly been trying to do all transactions in BsAs "white", getting facturas etc from...

    So, I'm being sued by the cleaning lady..

    ..who is demanding more than $50K. She cleaned my apartment sometimes once a week over the course over a year and a half, and did some administrative work for some months. I wanted to end our agreement because I thought it was very expensive. For the same reason she did not want to end it...

    opening bank account for "residento transitario"

    Greetings; another option is to have a trusted person in BsAs co-sponsor your bank account. I was not able to open one by myself, CDI or not, but with a porteño in tow I succeeded. The statements are mailed to my address, I have an ATM card in my name, and I have my own login info for the...

    Olympic Coverage on TV

    Hmm. I would suggest checking out the web broadcast options from Torino. Check out the national TV companies in the countries where skating is big, e.g. Netherlands or Norway. The Norwegian Broadcasting Service NRK does carry a live stream on www.nrk.no, which you need to sign up for. Good luck...
