USA2Brazil initially posted:
Looking for advice. My spouse was married in Brazil, moved to the US and lived in the US for 6 years. They got divorced in the US but never had the divorce recognized in Brazil. We met and got married. After our marriage in the US, my spouses ex filed divorce paperwork in Brazil instead of having Brazil recognize the divorce in the US. Nobody thought anything about it until it came time to get a new Brazilian passport. Now, the Consulate wants the Brazilian divorce to be removed and the US divorce to be recognized in Brazil. Does anybody know where we can get help?
billrandle replied on March 14, 2015 with:
Seems complicated. I'm in the process of getting a divorce from my Brasilian wife while I am in Germany. My attorney is Brasilian and is in Brasil. I'm sure he could answer your question. If the divorce was filed in Brasil, was it completed? Contact me if you want my attorneys name.

Rjcaswell posted Property/house sitting on the Brazil forum:
Hi My wife and I own a house and a small cabin to rent in a beautiful rural region of Santa Catarina. We however need to go back to Australia for length of time and need someone to look after the property whilst we are away. I was wondering where would be the best place to advertise this. I know there are house sitting web sites in Australia. I feel like this would be a perfect opportunity for retired expats wanting to get away from the city. You can see photos of the cabin and region on www.cabanapedrabranca.com. cheers Ryan

Dear Expat Exchange, Can someone in Brazil explain to me how the Banco Central do Brasil applies the PTAX on international wire transfers? What is the tax and why do Brazilians have to absorb it? Are there other costs when making a BRL transfer internationally? (bank costs, wire transfer cost, etc) If anyone could help clear this up it would be appreciated.
caz2013 replied most recently with:
They told me taxes would be applied no matter what bank, almost 20% i believe. The money wasnt earned in brazil though, got a tax person to look into it, consulted other banks, thome country embassy here in brazil, etc,they said these charges would not be applied. Ofcourse all the banks tell you wonderfull things until you actually have to do business with them. I would be interested in hearing how you get on. I have parked the idea for the moment...exchange rate of reais improved against reais, might as well make use of the interest .

If you look at recent USA history, it always appears that some other country is smarter when it comes to macroeconomics. But trust me it is all "rope a dope". The Brasilian reaction to EVERYTHING is to TAX the problem. So where is the money? Certainly not in the form of more police or better schools. Currently the Brasilian government is tiring to tax wealth based on what is bought. If your income is from foreign legal sources it will be subject to double taxation. The question stands, where will the money go?

I was married in Brazil at local civil building. The marriage was never register in the consulate. I am from USA have a lawyer in Brazil they said I need to get a CFP number for them to use to sign document for me. Is this needed and where do I get this I in USA
Vegas12 replied most recently with:
Thanks my lawyer gave me a website to start the process. She told me it will take 8 weeks.
exnyer replied most recently with:
A CPF is like a Social Security card. In Brasil it is used to track ALL your financial transaction above a certain level and to ID you in most important government documentation. It is easy to get but, as an American you may find the process intrusive. Be patient and it will all be over -almost- soon.

kiwiinbrazil replied to the thread inscricao consular - anyone done this? on the Brazil forum:
cormorant initially posted:
Hi, UK citizen living in Fortaleza. More problems - thanks for replies to previous post. To get my "permanencia" on the basis of marriage I now have to do "inscricao consular". However when we phoned the consulate in Sao Paulo we were told that UK consulates no longer offer this service in Brazil. Anyone done this and familiar with the procedure?

The NZ embassey Did it for me for R$100. It is just letter with from a consulate of your country (in Brazil) that has your full name, full names of your parents and your date of birth and passport number. My first letter didn't have my parents name so I had to get them to send again. They have to do it! They maybe don't know what it is or that it's a requirement for permanencia now
