Let Ecuaassist help with all of your legal needs

Welcome and thank you for considering EcuaAssist to help you transition into your new life in beautiful Ecuador. We are here to make sure this is a pleasant and hassle-free experience for you, by providing an experienced, bilingual legal team that will support you every step of the way.

The importance of having good legal counsel is indispensable in Ecuador, where there are more than 18,000 laws and regulations, and their structure often leaves a great deal of room for speculation regarding the manner in which they should be applied; so much so that legal professionals who work as public servants, applying these laws day by day often disagree with each other which may cause inconsistencies in their services.

At EcuaAssist, we are proud to say we have access to the most extensive legal database in the country, updated every day, and even more importantly, we have experience working with these laws on a daily basis and are kept abreast of the trends of not only what is on the books, but what is happening in practice, in government offices, notaries, etc.  Our philosophy is “If we don’t know, we know who does know.”  If there is anything we can’t help you with directly we aren’t afraid to admit it, but we are confident that we will be able to set you on the right path in the direction of someone who has exactly the information you need.

The legal counseling that EcuaAssist provides is applicable in a number of areas including immigration, starting and maintaining companies, contractual law, real estate law, and investment advising.  We deliver all contracts to our clients in English and Spanish and our bilingual staff is always here to make sure that we are able to answer any questions or concerns efficiently and transparently and provide our clients with the best possible service, personalized to be of maximum relevance to your individual situation.

As the study of law is a social science, it is somewhat unpredictable, and every day we are presented with new challenges that we must face; but we are in this business because we love facing challenges and overcoming them in exciting, new, innovative ways.

Legal processes in Ecuador can be slow and complicated, but with our bilingual staff we can help to make it all a breeze. From banking assistance, to translating, to car registration we have experience in working with virtually every legal matter, take a look at some of our legal services offered below. We also have access to to the most extensive legal library database in the country, and are always up to date with the latest law changes.

Apostille Service

What is an Apostille?

An apostille specifies the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries (Check the list here) can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory countries. In other words It is an international certification comparable to a notarisation in domestic law.

An apostille is a type of certification that is issued by the Secretary of State or Ministry of Foreign Affairs of a country (or of a state in the U.S.) that makes a document legal on an international scale.

Just as a notary certifies that a copy is exact or a signature is true, an apostille certifies that a notary or public official is a real legal authority.

This certification is necessary to make any document legally acceptable in Ecuador.

Apostille document

In the United States: The apostille is issued by the US Department of State or the Secretary of a State certifying personal and commercial documents. Official papers or certificates that may require an apostille certificate to be attached are:

  • Diplomas

  • Marriage certificates

  • Birth certificates

  • Criminal background checks

  • Commercial documents

  • Business agreements

  • FDA, IRS, Certificate to Foreign Government or other Federal Government issued documents

As Canada is a non-signatory, Canadian documents for use abroad must be certified twice: at the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and subsequently by the Ecuadorian consulate in Canada.
