Estoy interesado en obtener la licencia de Real State en el Estado de la Florida, Soy Abogado en el Ecuador, pero estoy por recibir mis papeles de residente en USA y soy dispacitado, como podria hacer para obtener la licencia

Asked by: FERMU2266
FL requiere 63 horas de educación junto con aprobar su examen de licencia antes de que pueda solicitar su licencia. Podemos ayudarlo con esta educación. Sin embargo, consulte con ellos acerca de los requisitos de residencia (tiempo de vida en FL, etc.), así como cualquier otra documentación que puedan necesitar ya que usted viene de Ecuador. Definitivamente, vea si su título o estado de derecho será reconocido aquí en los EE. UU., Ya que esto posiblemente le ahorrará tiempo y dinero en los requisitos. Sin embargo, solo el estado puede aclarar esto. Su número de contacto y sitio web son: (850) 487-1395
