Grossmont College Writing Contract Law Short Essay
Submit a 400-500 word essay comparing American law to the law of your country of origin on the topic you have chosen.

There are also taxes that are incorporated depending on how a person’s estate has been dictated. Compare this with an American who owns property in Mexico. If they have an American will or trust, it can cause significant time delay, tax implications, and challenges with the Mexican legal system as the property is distributed. Alternatively, if there is a will or trust executed pursuant to Mexican law, the system becomes much less of a burden on the beneficiaries.
