I don't know if this is the correct forum but here is my question: My elderly mother-in-law has a banker in Spain who handles her checking account. Recently he had her sign over a valuable painting of my deceased father and took it back to Spain where he resides.

Would this come under Argentine law or Spanish law so I would know which avenue to follow to try to get it back and start an investigation into the background of this person? Thank any and all who can guide me in the right direction.

Gayle,

I am not sure if I understand the situation.

Could you please explain what do you mean with "he had her sign over a valuable painting"

Other information as what nationality she is, where does she live, is she a resident in case she is a foreigner, how old is she, is she mentally healthy or not, by what means the painting left the country, who bought the painting not the name but the nationality and possition, what type of paperwork completed the transaction, etc.

All great questions by Carmen... and following her lead:

* a closer look at the signed contract may be in order: where was it signed, was the signature notarized and where. Provided there is a contract, this paper may have additional notes in reference to how disputes should be handled, which jurisdiction, etc.
