A: Hi,

The cost of a will in Puerto Rico will depend on the Notary Public that you contract.

There are some options for indigent people such as: Corporacion de Servicios Legales de Puerto Rico an Pro Bono de Puerto Rico.

If your mother doesn't qualify for any of these programs you can contact a Notary Public in Puerto Rico and try to settle a payment plan or lower costs for the service.
