The first thing you need is a good local lawyer to go with you to the fiscal. You will get nowhere on your own...................In this case i am being scammed by a ex family member with a phony I.O.U. . Just a piece of paper with no date no notary no witness signature. Just an amount and alleged signature from me. I never recieved any money from this person so i referred him to fiscalia.
Depends on the person however it's worth preparing yourself for a fight as the old ways (connected to a local political scumbag) of swiddling foreigners are still pervassive in some parts of this country.
Thank You all for answering my questions, have a nice day.You might want to talk to the fiscalia first. In my experience they try to mediate first. But it takes nothing for a dominican to get a warrant for arrest against anyone. They just make a false statement and when you see the judge he lets you go pending any new information determined in next few months. No recourse here for false statements.
