"The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?"
Edgar Allan Poe
An affidavit is a document, explaining your conscious decision about your remains upon your passing. This is an important document that will make sure your loved ones know exactly what to do in a moment full of uncertainty.
How am I sure my remains will be handled in accordance with my affidavit?
Funeral homes in Ecuador are regulated by Art. 25 and 26 of the Regulations for Funeral Facilities and Corpse Management, published by the Official Registry number 226 on April 20TH, 2018. Which ensures your decision will be respected.
How does the affidavit for remains can go into effect?
Once you sign in the affidavit for your final remains at the notary office, the document may be delivered to the funeral home of choice for the proper treatment of your remains or you can give the document to someone you trust, and at the time of your death, this person will deliver the document and your will goes into effect.
