Civil Litigation in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Civil Affairs Lawyer

In Puerto Rico, civil litigation is a legal procedure meant to provide a private or public entity that has been wronged a monetary compensation. It is not meant to punish or deter crime, which is the purpose of the criminal justice system. Civil litigation can encompass a wide range of legal issues, and our firm handles both real estate litigation and probate litigation.

Real Estate Litigation

Matters involving real estate can sometimes become divisive and lead to lawsuits. Registered rights, usually through contracts, determine the ownership of property. Even if you are married to the owner of the property, your name must appear in the Property Register of Puerto Rico in order to be considered an owner. If you are having problems with property you believe is yours, an attorney from our firm may be able to assist you with your needs.

Probate Litigation

If you would like to contest a will or engage in another type of probate litigation, the legal team at the Law Office of Sylvia C. Lugo-Sotomayor can help you! Puerto Rico is unique in the fact that it has forced inheritance laws that require the deceased to pass property to children, grandchildren and sometimes even parents. If a will was not correctly written to include these family members, it is possible to contest it. Contact the firm for more information about your legal inheritance rights in Puerto Rico.
