Hi, I read many of the comments on here and I too have been frustrated, well in the Azores this summer I found a lawyer to help us with a family divorce, deaths, changing properties, getting rent paid from people on our land etc. the cost was reasonable and he speaks English. If anyone would like his contact please email me diane.puim@live.ca for his information.

Citizenship application. Worst service received in my life
I cannot believe how rude and unwilling to help these people are. I called and after hundreds of times trying to get through, finally got in touch with a guy to ask questions about the process. When I got there to file the application, turns out every piece of info I got from him was wrong including which documents to bring, costs, length of process. Thank god I started a year before I leave the country and brought extra documents or I would have been screwed.

I got there and it took hours before they served me. All the workers there were doing one job at a time and leisurely chit chatting and taking their time regardless of the huge line up. I get Europeans like their leisure time but come on! This is rediculous!! She told me it would take 6 weeks but probably 8 weeks since she was going on a two week vacation. 4 months later and nothing.

I've tried calling her and nothing. Countless voicemails and nothing back yet. I've tried calling other workers to see if they can help or ask her to call me back (they are in a large room with desks, easily can talk to each other) and was avoiding my questions, talking over me, giving me wrong information and basically trying to get rid of me. Out of the 10% of the time they did answer their calls, I practically got hung up on. Rude rude people who can't do their job.

death of someone living abroad
Could someone please help me with my query:
My mother who just recently passed away owned property and real estate in Portugal. Would anyone know what kind of documentation from Canada is needed to take to Portugal to change the ownership of properties? I've tried calling the consulate multiple times regarding this matter but can't get through to a receptionist. Thanks in advance for any advice you can throw my way.

Passport application
In all my experience both in government offices or embasy's , people behind their desks are simply rude. Frustrated to the max. No patience. This is over many many years and still today. Why are they working in this field? They are sure not proud or they want to help anyone.
Shame on them. A cleasing should be done. Hire toung motivated people!

Bunch of clowns
These people are brutal all you do is wait and get rude answers if you ask a question about anything to do with there job. It's like they think you should know everything about the service they are providing. If I did I would be working here and doing a better job then they do. Pathetic service and remarks no people skills and do one thing then wait all day again to do something also instead of both at once or one after the other. If I had my way I would slap some sense into them all and then thank them for nothing.
