Thanks for the post, but the phone numbers from the first post above do not work.

I tried this both this AM.

The site would be great if the numbers worked. Maybe someone could help us with that.

At the intersection of 貴陽街 and 康定路 (next to the police station), you'll find the TAIPEI CITY NEW IMMIGRANTS' HALL. The offer a variety of services including a free consultation with a lawyer on Friday afternoons. The one I met and got to know/need speaks English very well.

Recently he told me that he doesn't go there any more because aside from myself, nobody ever dropped in. He thinks it's because the foreigners don't know about this place.

Incidently, I think now they have other lawyers volunteering their time there on Fridays, but he says his free consultation is still availble. His name is John Yuan, and you can reach him at 0910-180-130.

I hope you don't need a lawyer, but if you do, at least he's good for a free chat to discuss your options...and/or you can always drop into the TCNIH to see what they can do for you as well.

Good luck

Where is this place? I translated the roads but haven't a clue where they are in the city. Thanks.

It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

I know a really good guy in HK who does customized personal wills and can cover multi jurisdictional issues. He isn't horribly expensive for a basic will and has done them for my wife and I. PM me if you want his contact details?

The number of megapixels does not determine a camera's picture quality; that's a marketing myth. The sensor size is far more important. (Use Google to find it. For example, search for "sensor size Nikon D90.")
