I hope you all can help me.
My father, a Taiwanese citizen, passed away in December of 2011. My mother, a Taiwanese Citizen, passed away in 2008. Both died in the US.
My parents were married in Canada. My siblings and I were born in Canada. Their marriage and our births were not registered in Taiwan. I know my father has assets in Taiwan, mainly bank accounts, and a stock account. He told me before he died where his bank books and stamp were, and that was what I needed to retrieve his assets upon his death. We live in the US, and are not sure what to do next.
Do I go to the local consulate to authenticate marriage certificates, birth certificates? I am unsure of the process of retrieving assets in Taiwan after death. Can anyone give any words of advice?
